MedTech Innovator is one of the world’s premier non-profit accelerators in the medical technology sector and Sidekick is one of the 50 companies chosen to join the annual MedTech Innovator Summit.
During these uncertain and challenging times, the need for health innovators — specifically those that promise to deliver long-term value to the healthcare system and patients — is more critical than ever, Paul Grand, chief executive officer of MedTech Innovator, said.
MedTech Innovator is deeply committed to finding the best and brightest medical technology startups around the world and providing them with the right resources to help them succeed. We are excited to welcome this year’s cohort of entrepreneurs who are undoubtedly poised to improve the lives of patients through innovation.
The selection process for this year’s accelerator program was extremely competitive, MedTech revealed in a press release, with only a 3% acceptance rate.
Together with the senior leadership teams of its corporate partners and nearly 200 industry judges, MedTech Innovator evaluated the pitches of 190 candidates out of more than 1,000 applications from 45 countries and 48 US states.
