Make the Whole World See
In 2016 Verb joined forces with social innovation company Clearly to launch the Clearly Vision Prize. Its aim: accelerate innovation that brings vision-care solutions to the five billion people worldwide who suffer poor vision and lack access to treat it.
This global competition brought together inventors, entrepreneurs, health professionals, and tech innovators from 21 different countries to combat the world’s number one form of disability. It also awarded more than $250,000 in prizes for scalable solutions that continue to change the way the world addresses eye and vision care.

The competition mobilized a wide variety of stakeholders including healthcare educators, investors and practitioners, and health innovation experts.
