Apply for the 2023 "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 2023 pediatric medical device accelerator and pitch competition! Startups selected for the qualifying round be advanced to pitch a panel of evaluators. 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 11th Annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium hosted by the Children’s National Hospital and co-located with The MedTech Conference powered by AdvaMed

For companies that apply to MedTech Innovator 2023 as part of the general call for applications, you must complete a set of supplemental Pediatric questions and upload a Project Description to be considered separately for this opportunity.
