The past several years have not been the best of times for medtech start-up fundraising. The unreliability of FDA’s approval process and major shifts in payment policy have decreased interest in medical devices investment. How are early-stage medtech companies coping? What changes, if any, can be expected in the investment climate in the coming year? What’s the proper exit strategy for your medtech start-up? 

This program will focus on how entrepreneurs and investors are confronting the fundraising challenges of today’s market. Attendees will receive a briefing on the year-end MoneyTree Survey Report from PWC and hear the views and perspectives from two panels of prominent entrepreneurs and investors.
