It's almost time for March Madness and that means MD+DI's Medtech Startup Showdown is back. Enter your startup now!

It's almost time for March Madness and that means MD+DI's Medtech Startup Showdown is back. In our first annual competition, we're allowing medtech startups to face off against each other. Enter your startup now!

After last year's popular debut, MD+DI is back with the second Medtech Startup Showdown. In this contest, medical device startups square off against each other to determine who has what it takes to succeed in the industry.

Here's how it works: We'll organize startups into a tournament bracket, and each week give our readers the chance to vote for their favorites. The team in each bracket that gets the most votes will move on to the next round.

To be considered for the tournament, startups will need to fill out the form below and include a photo or mockup of their device. All answers and materials provided will be made public, with edits if necessary.

Check out last year's Round 1, Round 2, and Finals for more competition details.

The winner of the tournament will be profiled in an upcoming issue of MD+DI, and the top two finalists will receive free product certification from TÜV Rheinland.* 

Deadline to enter is March 25, 2016.

Click here for complete contest rules.

*Product certifications provided at the end of a successful outcome of the testing and evaluation of a product. The service does not include free evaluation and product testing.
