Trends and Challenges of Investing in Medtech
January 28, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$35
ATA cordially invites you to our Monthly Education Meeting
Topic: Trends and Challenges of Investing in Medtech
Venture investment in medtech and digital health has recovered since the 2008 financial crisis, but it is still difficult for medtech entrepreneurs to raise money at critical points in the capital continuum – especially moving from Seed to Series A. Traditional VCs and strategic investors are focused on more mature medtech companies. Early stage medtech companies are therefore forced to rely on sources (including angel groups) who may not be as well versed in and may have misconceptions about the medtech field. This session will provide an overview of the top trends in medtech as well as the challenges early stage companies are facing as they move from concept to commercialization. Whether you are new to investing in early stage medtech companies or interested in hearing the latest industry trends, join us for networking and an informative discussion.
Tiffany has spent over 15 years bringing innovative medical technology from benchtop to bedside. In 2012, she launched the Global Center for Medical Innovation, an Atlanta-based non-profit organization that represents the Southeast’s first medtech innovation center. GCMI brings together key members of the medical device ecosystem, including universities, research centers, clinicians, early-stage companies, industry and investors, with the goal of accelerating the commercialization of new medical technology.
