Montreal based MEDTEQ is looking to deploy more of its capital in HealthTech. Launched in 2013, they are currently operating a $19M VC fund focussed on medical technology and innovation, and they’re looking for the next big thing.
That’s why they’ve set up a pitch contest with a pretty healthy prize for the winner… $200,000! Applications are currently being accepted, and the event is taking place on Jan. 13th in Montreal. It will also kick-off MEDTEQ’s Disrupting Healthcare Summit the following day, featuring panels with a diverse group of investment experts, hospitals, C-suite as well as industry experts and promising startups.
“MEDTEQ is a proud supporter of innovative companies that are advancing tomorrow’s healthcare and the quality of patients lives. We’re looking for innovative health technology startups to showcase their solutions and pitch at our Investment Cocktail in January.” Said Meryeme Lahmami, Investment Fund Manager at MEDTEQ. She went on to tell Montreal in Technology that they will select 5 applicants and offer them the opportunity to pitch in front of an audience of potential investors and customers. A panel of judges from the investment community will then choose the winner of a $200,000 seed investment from MEDTEQ (assuming the winner passes due diligence etc.)
The pitch competition will be followed by a cocktail and networking, giving entrepreneurs an opportunity to meet with the most active investors in healthcare, key opinion leaders and experts in health. Interested companies can apply here.
MEDTEQ Invest invests in entrepreneurs and helps develop and commercialize their health technology innovations. They are a proud supporter of promising companies that are advancing tomorrow’s healthcare and the quality of patients lives. Innovative health technology startups are encouraged to apply to showcase their solutions and pitch at the Investment Cocktail until December 8.
