MedTech Summit Key Takeaways

On January 16, 2019, I hosted the first of many Centech MedTech Summit meetings focused on creating a world-class MedTech Innovation Ecosystem here in Montreal.

Almost 100 people participated in the program, which included opening remarks on the emerging MedTech ecosystem from me, followed by a lively and engaging panel discussion comprised of MedTech industry experts ranging from entrepreneurs, regulatory and IP experts through to VC’s. After the panel, 15 MedTech start-ups gave 3-5 minute “elevator pitches”. 

Everyone walked away from the Summit meeting excited about the prospects of a fully integrated MedTech ecosystem, with Centech as the hub.

With a critical (and growing) relationship with Montreal’s very successful AI ecosystem that was established here over 10 years ago, the future of MedTech start-ups looks very promising!

A larger and more inclusive Summit is being planned for this coming Spring!
