BIOMEDevice Boston and the Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council (MassMEDIC) are teaming up to produce the Startup Stadium on September 21 as the show returns this month at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Organized by Informa Markets – Engineering (publisher of MD+DI), BIOMEDevice Boston offers the biomedical industry the chance to meet with more than 200 biomed suppliers and attend free educational sessions from cutting-edge engineers, innovative thinkers, and business leaders.
MassMEDIC will provide the biomedical community a full day of live programming. "We are thrilled to announce that we're curating a full day of educational content in partnership with BIOMEDevice that will explore hot topics and emerging trends impacting the startup world," said Rachel Robinson, Vice President, MassMEDIC. "The speaker lineup is extraordinary, with senior leaders from Encora Therapeutics, Alva Health, Precision Medicine, PA Consulting, and so many more influential trailblazers in this space.”
Highlights include presentations from the MassMEDIC IGNITE 2021 cohort and panels on strategic partnerships and the state of investment in medtech, offering a one-of-a-kind look at the next generation of medtech companies.
Q3 2020 was a record year for venture investments in life sciences, marking the largest quarter on record in terms of dollars invested. According to JP Morgan, VC funding surpassed $100 million in the biopharma, medical technology, and tools and diagnostics space. "The record-high levels of capital being infused into the life sciences sector underscores the immense disruption we're about to see in this space,” said Melissa Magestro, VP and Group Portfolio Director of BIOMEDevice Boston. “What this means, though, is there is a critical need for education on how to best navigate this influx of investment, which we are proud to offer BIOMEDevice Boston attendees."
