We are now accepting proposals for the 2020 pediatric medical device accelerator and pitch competition! This year’s program focuses on pediatric devices with innovations in cardiovascular disease, orthopedics, and NICU. Startups selected for the qualifying round will pitch in Washington D.C. on March 23. Ten winners 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 $250K in prizes on Sunday, October 4 in Toronto at the 8th Annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium hosted by the Children’s National Hospital and co-located with The MedTech Conference powered by AdvaMed. The deadline to apply is Feb 22.
