Is my project/team eligible?

Is my project/team eligible?

Our program is targeted at MedTech, HealthTech, and BioTech startups at TRL 4 and above. Our specialty is healthcare startups with robust IP and a regulated path to market. 

Slick apps and user interfaces are great, but what gets us excited are radical new technologies like bionics, diagnostics, implants, instrumentation, robotics, personal preventative medicine, telemedicine, consumer health, AI and VR that will create a step-change in our healthcare systems and economies.

To be eligible for the program, founders/teams must be:

  • Based in Australia, or internationally with an ability to travel to Melbourne to attend intensive sprints and a demo day in person
  • Incorporated as a company, however, this is not required at the time of application.
  • Aware that setting up a startup and commercialising medical technology is demanding. The MedTech Actuator Accelerator is intensive and requires that teams can commit sufficient resources. We require at least one cofounder to participate in the Accelerator for the duration of the program.

If you are unsure about eligibility or have any other questions about our program, you can speak to Makenzie, Portfolio Manager, before submitting an application.
