Internationalization program for Medtech start-ups & spin-offs

Feb 6, 2023
12:30 - 17:30

Free (no show fee of 100€)

Flanders is exceptionally strong in the Life Sciences sector. This position can be further strengthened through internationalization. This is why the provinces of Flemish Brabant, East Flanders and Flanders Investment and Trade have joined forces with MEDVIA and Leuven.Inc Foundation to host a program on Internationalization for Medtech Start-ups & Spin-offs.

This program consists of eight sessions. All sessions require the active participation of those who register. At least 80% overall attendance is required to be allowed to present during the closing and final public pitch session. Preferably all sessions will be attended by the same person.
If you are unable to attend or the topic is more relevant for a colleague within your company, you can be replaced, if the organizer is informed beforehand.

Thanks to the financial support of the provinces of Flemish Brabant and East Flanders, there is no registration fee. However, a no-show fee of 100€ (excl.VAT) will be charged by Medvia for all non-attended sessions. After your registration, you will be invited for a selection interview. The interviews will take
place early January 2023. The program is only open tot Medtech companies that bring innovative solutions to the market, not to service providers.

Innovation is one of the keys to success. But it is not the only key; market access is equally important to long-term growth, as it helps boost sales and generate a return on investment for entrepreneurs. Companies must embrace and incorporate market access strategies early in the product development cycle to thrive in today’s value based, payer-dominant healthcare environment.
