T4M brings together Founders, Investors and the Industry

14.11.2018 - 09:09

What would the industry be without the fresh spirit of young businesses? What perspectives would start-ups have without companies who are enthusiastic about their new ideas and products? “T4M Start-up World” is a networking platform for founders, established small and medium sized companies and investors that promotes business contacts at Germany’s new trade fair for medical technology.

With “T4M Start-up World”, Messe Stuttgart in cooperation with the founders of the trade magazine “medtech zwo” provides a professional stage for founders with promising solutions in medical technology. 60 start-ups will get the opportunity to present themselves at T4M in an own area within the exhibition. A Pitching Stage will give young entrepreneurs in the medical technology sector an additional chance to present their business concepts to a specialist jury consisting of investors, representatives of the medical technology industry and founding experts. In a common Networking and Partnering Area, cooperations and partnerships can be initiated as well.

Spread over all three days of the fair, the "T4M Start-up World" will cover the most important segments of the medical technology industry ranging from prevention over inpatient and outpatient care, rehabilitation and care to production and manufacturing.

In the long run, the concept intends to bridge the gap between start-ups and SMEs. MedTech founders get tips and tricks for the realisation of their business ideas as well as information about accelerators, incubators and access to potential cooperation partners in the industry. Established companies on the other hand find a compact overview of the wide range of new trends in medical technology, financing and cooperation opportunities.

Active supporters of the new platform are local partners like the cluster initiatives BioRegio STERN Management GmbH and BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH, founding initiatives like Life Science Accelerator Baden-Württemberg, the Foundation for Medical Innovations and the MedTech Startup School in Tübingen.

Interested parties can supply their applications for the „T4M Start-up World“ and the Pitching Stage starting in mid-November. All details on application criteria and deadlines can be found at www.t4m-startupworld.de
