CAPCaT Virtual Startup Showcase & Strategic Partnership Connector

High-potential medtech startups will virtually demo their innovations and connect with strategic partners during this FREE showcase event on Thursday, June 18, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Center for Advancing Point of Care Technologies (CAPCaT) in Heart, Lung, Blood and Sleep Disorders is pleased to present its first showcase in this public, virtual forum. The focus will be on big company/little company strategic partnerships and the stage will be set for new, mutually beneficial connections to be made.

Innovators, investors, academics, students, and anyone, anywhere, interested in the future direction of vital point-of-care medtech are invited and welcome to attend.

What to expect

The morning will start off with strategic and venture capital investors reviewing live pitch presentations from six awardees who have received grant funding from CAPCaT since its inception in 2018.

Later in the morning, the format will shift to a panel presentation specifically aimed at preparing startups for strategic, “big company/little company” partnerships. The panel will share real examples and explain the how, what, why, when, and where of strategic partnerships in a dynamic, engaging exchange.

Attendees will be encouraged to participate via an online Q&A portal.

Who should attend?

The CAPCaT Showcase 2020 will bring together high potential startups, strategic partners, investors, inventors, academics and a broad range of subject matter experts.

It doesn’t matter where you’re located—east coast, west coast, or in between. Startup CEOs, academics, business professionals, students, and all entrepreneurial minds: This virtual event is for YOU.

In addition to seeing pitches from the six CAPCaT awardees, you’ll learn how to build strategic partnerships—critical to the advancement of your innovation—during a panel presentation. And you can participate as well.
