MedTech Innovator is the medical technology industry’s global showcase and accelerator for innovative medical device, digital health and diagnostic companies. Our mission is to improve the lives of patients by accelerating the growth of companies that are transforming the healthcare system. MedTech Innovator is the largest platform of its kind, providing participants with broad exposure to the leading players in the medtech industry.
Each year, MedTech Innovator recognizes the 50 best-in-class startups across the medtech industry. Startups selected for this honor receive a slot in the MedTech Innovator Showcase. The MedTech Innovator Showcase is an annual program that provides startups with high profile visibility to healthcare investors, stakeholders, and decision makers, access to a network of mentors and peers, and participation in a customized virtual curriculum. Medical device, diagnostic, or digital health startups are eligible to apply.
MedTech Innovator Showcase – 50 companies will be selected to participate in the MedTech Innovator Showcase. These companies will have access to corporate executives, investors, providers, payers, FDA, NIH, DoD, and other stakeholders. They will join a growing peer / alumni network of 185 of the most promising medtech startups around the world. Showcase companies receive one complimentary registration to the WSGR Medical Device Conference in San Francisco, as well as one full-access registration to The MedTech Conference, powered by AdvaMed. At both conferences, companies will participate in the MedTech Innovator Showcase, an on-stage interactive program. The showcase highlights the most innovative companies in sector-based sessions, moderated by leading corporate executives and investors. Additionally, MedTech Innovator Showcase companies will be profiled in a booklet distributed at The MedTech Conference in Boston.
All early- to mid-stage medical device, diagnostic, or digital health companies are encouraged to apply. Companies who have raised (or are soon to close) a series B through series C will be considered for only the Showcase track.
