[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Australian start-ups are being encouraged to apply for the MedTech Innovator’s four-month Showcase and Accelerator competition, which will feature the healthcare industry’s best-in-class medical technologies from around the world, and the opportunity to be awarded up to $500,000 and in-kind prices during the competition.
In 2018, more than 730 companies applied to participate in the competition, which culminated with a plenary session at The MedTech Conference in Philadelphia, attended by over 3,000 leaders in the MedTech industry. From that, five finalists were selected to compete in the grand finale, in which a live audience voted for the competition winner.
MedTech Innovator CEO, Paul Grand, said the competition “fosters an industry-wide global network that provides immense value to participating start-ups and industry partners who share a mission to improve and extent patients’ lives.”
In 2019, there will be several rounds in which companies gain valuable exposure to industry executives and decision makers through online application reviews, in-person pitch sessions, mentoring, conference showcases, and live competitions. The top applicants, selected by leading MedTech companies, will be invited to present at one of MedTech Innovator’s regional pitch events across the US and international in spring 2019.
There is no application fee, and no equity required from participants – so apply now! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
