The Montreal-based health technology organization Medteq is seeking health startups to apply to pitch at its next funding event, which offers startups a chance to win $200,000 in funding.
Five founders from across the country will pitch at a cocktail reception in Montreal on Jan. 13. A panel of judges will then choose which pitcher receives $200,000 in funding. You can apply here.
The next day, Medteq will host its Disrupting Healthcare Summit, which will feature panels of investment managers, hospital execs, entrepreneurs and industry experts.
“Medteq is a proud supporter of innovative companies that are advancing tomorrow’s healthcare and the quality of patients' lives,” Medteq Investment Manager Meryeme Lahmami told the wedsite Montreal in Technology recently. “We’re looking for innovative health technology startups to showcase their solutions and pitch at our Investment Cocktail in January.”
Earlier this year, Nova Scotian companies Spring Loaded Technology and Densitas were among eight companies that received funding from MedTeq. The organization did not release specifics, except to say the eight companies’ funding rounds, including investments from Medteq and others, totalled $11 million.
Launched in 2013, MedTech now oversees a $19 million venture capital fund focussed on medical technology and innovation.
