COIN logoDENVER - The Colorado Innovation Network (COIN) and Kaiser Permanente Colorado announced the ActivateCOLORADO Challenge for delegates taking part in the third annual 2014 COIN Summit Aug. 26-27 in Denver.

As part of the Challenge, each delegate will be given a Jawbone UP24 tracker band to allow him or her to connect and build relationships as part of the innovation network and discuss the importance of innovation on health and technology.

The COIN Summit helps elevate the state's innovation climate with two days of dialogue and networking focused on sharing ideas and creating relationships that can propel the state forward.

"The Internet is no longer just a global network for people to communicate with one another using computers, it is being redefined also as the Internet of Things - a platform for devices to communicate electronically with the world around them," said Michelle Hadwiger, COIN's executive director.

The COIN Summit will bring together 275 diverse leaders from around the world to connect on innovation topics.

"This year, the addition of the ActivateCOLORADO Challenge presents a unique opportunity to engage business leaders and innovators from across the globe in an important discussion on technology and health," said Donna Lynne, Kaiser Permanente Colorado president.
