Our village is raising MedTech’s next wave of innovators.

Our village is raising MedTech’s next wave of innovators.

Thank you to health innovation experts from across Asia Pacific and the US who recently shared their industry insights and knowledge through MedTech Actuator sprints with the region’s best emerging health entrepreneurs.

As Asia Pacific’s MedTech catalyst, MedTech Actuator is a 15-month, industry-led, venture-backed program that aggressively funds and accelerates medical, health and biological technology startups. Our latest MedTech Actuator cohort is driving innovation for patients and clinicians who need it most, in diverse fields spanning IVF, prosthetics, rehabilitation and more.

The sprints: relentless execution towards market success.

Through our recent MedTech Actuator sprints, founders developed expertise in business models, pitching, customer validation, IP, regulations, reimbursement, clinical trials in Australia, Singapore, the US, and the EU.

This expertise will be crucial to their success in determining a pathway to market, including how long it will take to secure their first paying customer.

With these important foundations in place MedTech Actuator startups are now working to address critical risk areas, before ramping up commercialisation activities.

Our village, helping to take founders there.
