Hosted in Memphis, Tennessee, the program leverages key regional strengths in biomedical research and medical device manufacturing to create a unique program that is meticulously designed to maximize the probability of success for our entrepreneurs.
Since 2012, we have accelerated 20 startups in four cohorts. These companies have gone on to raise $10MM of capital, and several have already launched their products in the commercial marketplace.
The majority of medical devices get cleared for commercial deployment through the FDA’s 510(k) clearance process, which is the fastest and most economical route to market for a new medical device.
