The COVID-19 pandemic forced many unforeseeable changes in health care and the global economy. As the world recovers from this crisis, the MedTech field faces new challenges but also unprecedented opportunities.

We aim to accomplish this by facilitating open discussion among clinicians, entrepreneurs, investors, payors, and regulators, with the goal of offering insights based on real-world data and experience.


  • To discuss the current state of the MedTech field using a multidisciplinary, data-driven approach
  • To identify and address the most pressing global healthcare challenges and formulate viable solutions by examining new interdisciplinary perspectives and emerging trends in MedTech technology innovation
  • To identify and promote some of the most promising early-stage technologies in MedTech innovation
