eg technology are pleased to announce our sponsorship of the coveted EIT Health Catapult, an accelerator initiative run by EIT Health. The EIT Health Catapult is a unique competition that showcases BioTech, MedTech and Digital Health start-ups to leading experts and investors across Europe.
The programme has been established in order to source and accelerate European start-ups by delivering high-quality, bespoke training in business modelling and planning, investment deal negotiation and specialised pitch preparation while giving access to Europe’s top healthcare experts and investors. Each year the programme recognises and awards the 42 start-ups with the best business concepts, fast-tracking them to become part of the EIT Health Community of world-leading companies.
As a sponsor of the EIT Health Catapult, eg technology will be offering an award for the most innovative product within the MedTech category. We have offered a total of 10 days’ worth of engineering expertise that can be used towards the realisation of their innovation. This will be split between the top three chosen applicants, with the winner receiving five days, the runner up receiving three days and third place receiving two days of development time. The competition is currently at the semi-final stage and the finalists will be announced on the MedTech semi-final day on the 2nd of December.
Commenting on the competition, eg technology’s head of business development, Rouzet Agaiby said:
“Our team at eg specialise in taking medical devices and Labtech instrumentation from concept to realisation, bridging the gap between clinical innovation and market-ready products. eg have in-house expertise in software, electronics and mechanical engineering as well as industrial design, human factors, quality assurance and project management and this competition provides a perfect opportunity for start-ups to access and leverage this full spectrum of specialist knowledge in the key areas of product design and development within the MedTech sector. We hope through our sponsorship, we will help three aspiring start-ups to realise their innovations.”
