M2D2 International MedTech Forum 2020
Discover breakthrough life sciences innovation straight out of India. See six finalists pitch their ideas to a panel of leading investors.
Life sciences innovation knows no borders—and the first M2D2 International MedTech Forum, sponsored by the Deshpande Foundation, will amplify six groundbreaking and life-saving ideas from India-based researchers. Tickets are free, so please join us on October 8 for this virtual event.
The pandemic halted Deshpande Foundation’s plans to bring more Finalist teams to Massachusetts for the 2020 Challenge. So we’ve created a virtual forum for them to make their pitches. Join us to see their eye-opening ideas!
These six teams were chosen from among the 250 entries we received this winter for the 2020 $200K Challenge. They represent incubators including Indian Institute of Technology Madras/HTIC Chennai; NCL Innovation Park, Pune, and Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, as well as a private, Bengaluru-based firm.
