MedTech Innovator is a prestigious competition featuring early-stage medical device companies. The competition and accelerator assists these early-stage companies to refine their business models and advance their strategic business development goals. The semifinalists will compete for over $300,000 in prizes and the audience has the final say on who wins it all.
