2023 M2D2 $200K Challenge

Calling all Investors, Medical Device Innovators, Biotech Entrepreneurs, Academics, Students, and Life Sciences Industry Professionals:
Join members of the life sciences community in Lowell as the $200K Challenge finalists selected through a competitive process pitch their innovations to our panel of judges.

At stake: a share of a $200,000 purse of sponsor-provided, in-kind resources that can help take an innovation to the next level — or even to market!

(Examples of in-kind resources include lab space, equipment, and legal/regulatory guidance)

We’ve seen past winners advance to larger funding rounds, commence clinical studies, and enter strategic partnerships with global life sciences companies. The $200K Challenge is the place to see what’s up-and-coming in life sciences innovation.

Finalist Pitch-Off — Wednesday, March 22 @ 4pm ET
15 medical device startups will present their innovations to a panel of industry experts. At the pitch event, you can network with startups, judges, leaders from local biotech companies, industry partners, subject matter experts, and other life sciences entrepreneurs.
