Apply for the 2022 "Make Your Medical Device Pitch for Kids!" Competition

Calling all medical device innovators focused on pediatric health:

Now accepting proposals for the NCC-PDI pediatric accelerator and $150K pitch competition!

We are now accepting proposals for the 2022 pediatric medical device accelerator and pitch competition! Startups selected for the qualifying round will pitch virtually on May 20. Five companies will then advance to participate in the Pediatric Accelerator program, which is primarily a virtual program. Startups do not need to relocate to participate. The program will culminate with a competition for $150K in prizes at the 10th Annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium hosted by the Children’s National Hospital and co-located with The MedTech Conference powered by AdvaMed. The extended deadline for new applicants to apply is April 29. 

For companies that applied to MedTech Innovator 2022 as part of the general call for applications, you have until May 3 to submit your responses to the Pediatric supplemental questions and upload a Project Description.
