Eleven Medical Device Startups Head to Texas Medical Center
Cohort arrives to make their mark on the future of health care
The Texas Medical Center (TMC) Innovation Institute this week welcomes 11 startups selected from more than 100 applications to its accelerator program, TMCx, which for the first time is focusing exclusively on medical devices. This is the third installment of TMCx, a program that couples the resources of the world’s largest medical center with the innovative spark of entrepreneurs.
Over the next 15 weeks, the companies will learn and collaborate with some of the top industry experts to take their medical device from concept to commercialization. They will also be introduced to stakeholders at the 56 member institutions within the Texas Medical Center with the goal of meeting the needs of patient care. Not only will these companies tap into business experts in that field, but will also have access to the largest collection of top physicians and scientists on one campus, which serves over 8.2 million patients annually.
Hailing from Texas, New York and California among other states, and global counterparts including Mexico, companies accepted into the third TMCx class include:
