What are the attendance requirements?

We have structured an intense program that meets each team where they are at. The MedTech Actuator™ requires the full-time participation of someone core to your team.

What does a typical day for a founder in the MedTech Actuator™ look like?

During sprint weeks, you’ll work on IP, building your team, product development, regulatory pathways, reimbursement strategy and your go-to-market strategy. You’ll stress test your strategies with experts and be inspired by fellow entrepreneurs and those further in their journey. Each day in sprint week is intensive by design, to give you momentum and get you that much closer to your next value inflection point.

In off-sprint weeks, you’ll work with your team members towards key milestones from wherever makes the most sense for you — one of our coworking spaces or anywhere where else that suits you. You’ll work with industry mentors, apply what you’ve learnt in sprint weeks, refine your strategy and grow your company.

Can you describe the MedTech Actuator™ program?

The MedTech Actuator™ is designed to address the three primary startup risk factors – technology, capital access, team capability – and is divided into three phases. The first two phases (months 1–6) consist of sprints and off-sprint time. You’ll spend 3–5 days of each month in an intensive sprint with your colleagues, learning from industry experts. During non-sprint weeks you’ll be free to work on your startup full-time — implementing what you’ve learnt. You’ll access the MedTech Actuator’s network of industry mentors and work towards agreed milestones.

At the end of phase 2, you’ll present to investors and key ecosystem members in Singapore and Australia at Demo Day. After Demo Day, you’ll embark on nine months of self-structured, intensive growth with full access to our industry mentors and ecosystem partners — and support for your fundraising activities.
