Rev.1 Engineering, an Asahi Intecc group company, has been a part of the MedTech Innovator ecosystem for several years. We’ve had the pleasure of being part of their mentorship program since and helping MedTech companies as they work through the program.
Each year, MedTech Innovator acknowledges over 50 top-performing startups and scaleups in the medtech sector. Selected companies gain exposure through the MedTech Innovator Showcase, offering visibility at major conferences and media outlets, access to investors and decision-makers, mentorship, and involvement in a tailored virtual curriculum.
MedTech Innovator applications are open to early to mid-stage companies in the medical device, diagnostic, or digital health industries. For specific areas of interest, refer to the MedTech Industry Strategic Interest Areas. Ideally, applicants will have prototypes, proof of concept evidence, and the financial means to execute during the program. Accepted companies must ensure the attendance of a co-founder, CEO, or a relevant senior team member at the June 2024 Innovator Summit and the October 2024 Showcase and Finals during The MedTech Conference.
Benefits of the MedTech Innovator Program
Based on feedback from their corporate partners and application reviewers, 20% of applicants are invited to participate in one of a series of pitch events. The pitch gives applicants an opportunity to meet with industry-leading judges including investors, providers, and senior executives from world-class medtech companies.
Selected companies will have access to corporate executives, investors, providers, payers, FDA, NIH, DoD, and other stakeholders during the MedTech Innovator Accelerator. The accelerator includes an exclusive peer alumni network of 500+ if the highest performing MedTech startups. Companies will also receive a complimentary registration to WSGR Medical Conference in SF in June, as well as one full-access registration to The MedTech Conference, in October.
At these events, companies will participate in the MedTech Innovator showcase – an on-stage interactive program that is moderated by leading executives and investors.
Early-stage companies (pre-Series B) can benefit from mentorship provided by MedTech Innovator’s corporate partners and have the opportunity to compete for non-dilutive cash prizes, totaling up to $500,000.
