Why should I apply for Origin?
MedTech Actuator Origin is a fantastic opportunity for early-stage entrepreneurs and innovators to learn and engage with the startup ecosystem, whilst also providing teams with a chance to pitch their ideas. The winner of MedTech Actuator Origin will receive a cash and in-kind prize pack worth over $20,000, and fast-tracked entry into MedTech Actuator Accelerator 2024.
If you’re a MedTech, BioTech or HealthTech project looking to transform into a startup, MedTech Actuator Origin will show you the ropes and provide you with a pathway forward. If you’re lucky and have the ability to pitch the house down, then you might even score some equity-free cash while you’re at it.
Through intensive learning alongside a cohort of founders and innovators, you’ll be exposed to the ecosystem, industry leaders and so much more before you pitch in multiple rounds to score a place at the Origin finals at the MedTech Actuator Showcase.
Topics covered include idea validation, intellectual property, pitching, professional development, pathways to market, business models, navigating Australia’s healthcare ecosystem, and funding for early-stage ventures.
