Midwest-based Gener8tor launches MedTech Accelerator
While most people living here don’t realize it, there is a strong medical innovation corridor running through the upper Midwest. Starting in Chicago, the corridor runs up to Milwaukee, over to Madison, and up to Minneapolis. Many powerhouse healthtech companies and organizations make their home in this healthtech hub — including Baxter (Chicago), GE Healthcare (Milwaukee), Epic (Madison), and Medtronic (Minneapolis), just to name a few.
Midwest-based gener8tor, with offices in Milwaukee, Madison, and Minneapolis, has just launched a new medtech accelerator that aims to work with medical device, healthcare-related software, biotech, and diagnostics startups. Under their gBETA program, selected teams are invited to participate in a free seven-week accelerator intended for early-stage startups. What is unique about this program is that gBETA takes no equity and requires no fees.
The advantages of participating in an accelerator for startup companies are numerous. In the gBETA program, participants will enjoy free office space, formal mentorship, coaching, and access to a community of entrepreneurs and industry experts from gener8tor, Boston Scientific, Mayo Clinic, and the University of Minnesota. Additionally, there is access to a network of successful entrepreneurs, industry experts, angel investors, and venture capitalist.
The program is sponsored by Boston Scientific with support from Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota.
Overall, we think this is an exciting development for our local healthtech community! We look forward to following the progress of the companies that take part in the inaugural program launch! Follow the link below to learn more!Visit the gBETA Medtech Website to Learn More
