Tackling Startup Engineering Challenges in Medtech

Let's Talk Medtech guest
Velentium CEO Dan Purvis shares advice for tackling medtech engineering challenges for industry startups.

Startups are the lifeblood of the medical device industry because they have the ability to pull off big feats and innovate more nimbly than the larger players. That said, there is a lot of medtech engineering challenges that startups should be aware of. In this episode of Let's Talk Medtech, Dan Purvis, CEO and co-founder at Velentium, shares some important insights for tackling the most common medtech engineering challenges and how today's hottest medical device trends impact the medtech engineer.

MD+DI also spoke with Purvis last June when he shared with us the inspiring story of how Velentium became involved with the COVID-19 ventilator initiative known as Project V. Click here to read what that experience was like for him.



Also be sure to check out our recently published feature on the past year’s biggest medtech engineering challenges and how they were solved. We would love to share your stories of medtech engineering achievement, too!
