Medtech Startup Showdown 2016: Round 1

March 28th, 2016 | MDDI Staff | Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry —

Which of these 16 medical device startups will make it to the top of the pile?

Our Medtech Startup Showdown has returned for 2016! We're pitting young medical device companies against each other tournament-style and asking you, our readers, to choose which ones move on to the next round.

Here's how it works:

We put out a call for medical device startups to enter, and MD+DI's editors narrowed the field to sixteen. We've paired them off in brackets, and now you get to vote for your favorites to advance.

After each weekly voting period, we'll announce which startups received enough votes to make it to the next round.

Round 1 voting will be open until Sunday, April 3. The top two finalists will receive free product certification from TÜV Rheinland.* We'll announce the champion April 25, and the winner will be profiled in an upcoming issue of MD+DI.

Please note that the contest is best viewed on a laptop, computer, or table. Full content cannot be viewed on a smartphone.
