MedTech Minds Feb. 2020 E-Learning Summary


Event Summary

MedTech Minds groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your MedTech business and personal skills.

To improve learning and problem solving, events events consist of two segments, (1) Problem Investigation and (2) Community Advice.

Hone your skills and learn about MedTech through investigation and discussion along with expert advice on these questions:

  • What is the best way to initially organize work for a startup? Is it better to have employees/contractors, outsource to CMO / Regulatory Companies or some combination of both?
  • When evaluating whether to invest in a company, does an investor engage the services of a technical subject matter expert to help vet the engineering team, technology or the design of a product as part of their due diligence?
  • If a medical device you are designing has the potential to impact multiple elements of the insurance/reimbursement process, how do you present the potential reimbursement on the investor pitch deck?
  • For a scientist or engineer wanting to start a company, what is the most effective way of meeting the business needs around company formation and other associated requirements in preparation of fund raising. If one of the options is to partner with a business-oriented person what would be a suggested ownership structure between the two?
