MedTech Innovator 2019 Showcase

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.

Program Benefits

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.

Additionally, MedTech Innovator Showcase companies will be profiled in a booklet distributed at The MedTech Conference in Boston.
