The MedTech Actuator

We support the MedTech innovators who are changing the face of healthcare through our MedTech Accelerator program. We know you can’t transform healthcare, deploy killer technology or build an exceptional company by yourself – it takes a great team, industry expertise and usually a lot of money. Our job is to surround you with everything you need: from product design and development to clinical trial, IP, commercialisation strategy and finance experts, so that you can concentrate on smashing it out of the park.
