MedTech Innovator

MedTech Innovator is the industry’s nonprofit global competition and accelerator for medical device, digital health and diagnostic companies, with a mission to improve the lives of patients by accelerating the growth of companies that are transforming the healthcare system. AdvaMed and The MedTech Conference are proud to partner with MedTech Innovator for the sixth consecutive year.

After over 1,000 applications and seven virtual pitch events, MedTech Innovator has selected the top 50 early and mid-stage device, diagnostic and digital health companies for the 2020 showcase. These companies will be featured at The Virtual MedTech Conference this fall. All 50 companies will participate in the virtual MedTech Innovator Showcase presentations, where representatives from each company will participate in a moderated panel discussion. Thirty of the MedTech Innovator Showcase companies will participate in a four-month virtual accelerator, which provides companies with the opportunity to receive continual in-depth mentorship from industry stakeholders. Five finalists from the Accelerator program will go on to compete during the MedTech Innovator Finals at The Virtual MedTech Conference, with a live audience vote and the opportunity to win $500,000 in prizes and the title of MedTech Innovator 2020!

Congratulations to the MedTech Innovator 2019 winner, Forest Devices!

"We’re an early stage company so it’s easy to focus on funding, but MTC has provided so much more. We learned of the MedTech Innovator program here, and are now a proud participant. We also found our development and quality partners here that have helped other startups scale. We will continue to return for more connections and insight."
