Accelerate your MedTechpreneur Skills!
lifetech.brussels is happy to announce the launch of a startup accelerator in medical devices!
Thanks to the funding of the European Regional Development Fund and the Brussels-Capital Region and in collaboration with Unamec, the UCL, the ULB and the VUB, the cluster designed a fine-tuned program in order to ensure the best possible match between the needs of all the players of this sector and its specific requirements. All the while, it allows keeping an eye on the exciting challenges and growing business opportunities of the medtech sector for our region.
The program consists of two main phases.
Phase I is a 6-day long “technical” module (3*2 days) which aims at acquainting the participants with the different types of medical devices and some key sector-related challenges (for e.g. reimbursement, materiovigilance, traceability etc.). In order to ensure enriched cross-perspectives, each topic will be presented by a duo of corporate/business experts and challenged by the participants in groups.
Phase II is a 4-month long “business” module (between June and November 2016). Eight booming projects, selected by a jury during Phase I, will benefit from an intensive theoretical and practical coaching provided by experienced coaches and experts (both in the medtech and entrepreneurship areas). The objective is to develop, challenge and boost every business aspect of their project in the most efficient way. Customized coaching includes 5 one-day long collective business-oriented sessions, a total of 16 hours of individual coaching per group and peer-reviewed sessions aiming at challenging and strengthening participants’ business pitch.
