*Investment terms for the 2023 Accelerator

The MedTech Actuator takes 5% equity for participation in the program.

Access to capital is required to participate in the program. Companies must have access to a minimum of $50,000 to ensure that reports and documents critical to future investment rounds can be completed in the first 6 months of the program. This cash flow can be either self-funded through the ‘unfunded track’, or from The MedTech Actuator fund as part of ‘the funded track’.

Through an exclusive venture partnership, startups may be eligible for pre-seed investment. The minimum investment is $50,000 up to a maximum of $200,000. For every $10,000 that our fund invests, we will take 1% equity.
