Ohio Awards $4 Million For Opioid Crisis Solutions

Three small companies and University Hospitals in Cleveland will be receiving $1 million each for products they created to help fight opioid abuse with technology.

It’s the final stage of a unique state-sponsored contest to find new ways to use tech to battle opioid addiction.

When John Konsin received word that his company won a million dollars, he says he kinda lost it.

“I pretty much cried for a minute and a half when I got the call that we had won the challenge. It was a remarkable event because it changed everything with the trajectory of our company,” Konsin says.
