About us

We support the MedTech innovators who are changing the face of healthcare.

We know you can’t transform healthcare, deploy killer technology or build an exceptional company by yourself – it takes a great team, industry expertise and usually a lot of money.

Our job is to surround you with everything you need: from product design and development to clinical trial, IP, commercialisation strategy and finance experts, so that you can concentrate on smashing it out of the park.

Everything we do is industry-led

We’re about real markets, real needs, real healthcare and real experts. We surround you with people and tools that are about doing things that really matter, not just thinking about things or doing the wrong things. It’s that real-world focus that can give you the edge.

We have a deep MedTech focus

We’re about deep tech – about commercialising those genuinely new, hard-to-come-up-with, scientific discoveries that can change the face of healthcare. Slick apps and user interfaces are nice, but our focus is more on radical new technologies like bionics, devices, implants, instrumentation and AI that will create a step-change in our health systems and in our economies.

We are all about collaborating with others in the value network

We aren’t about duplicating or eating other people’s lunch – when we see something awesome our first response is to partner, not compete. We’re about value – for innovators, for healthcare, for Australia – not about egos.
