MedTech Meetup for Start-ups
Organised by APACMed. Partnered With SGInnovate
Bringing new medtech and digital health innovations to market is a complex and challenging endeavour. This informal event will bring together local SMEs and start-ups to discuss how to overcome some of these challenges, including raising capital. Join us at the APACMed-SGInnovate MedTech Meetup for Start-ups on Wednesday 13 June @ BASH (Ayer Rajah Blk 79).
The first part of the morning, co-hosted by SGInnovate, is open to both APACMed members and non-members. The following session, from 10:00-11:30am is restricted to APACMed SME members only. This smaller, closed door event will focus on establishing a new APACMed Working Group for our SME/startup members, reviewing upcoming plans and activities and discussing how APACMed can better support its SME/startup members.
