Our Guiding Principles

Supporting Innovation

We are committed to the long-term success of our medtech ecosystem in New England. We offer programming to engage the next generation of healthtech leaders and support both emerging and growing companies with mentorship, access to investments, and resources.

Creating Opportunity for All

We believe that the medtech industry must champion inclusion and diversity at all levels, to ensure  better representation of our broader culture.

Strengthening Community

We provide connection points for the New England medtech ecosystem with world-class signature events, webinars, training opportunities, online communities, and personal introductions – all to bolster collaboration and collective success.

Securing Our Region’s Future

We are champions of the medtech industry across the spectrum of government, advocating at the state and federal levels to promote policies that protect and support our members, reflect the unique interests and contributions of our region’s medtech sector and support long-term growth in our region.

In Massachusetts, we’re so lucky to have the resources that we have – our amazing hospitals and healthcare institutions, research laboratories, our colleges and Universities, and an amazing collection of biotechnology, life sciences companies and entities, including this wonderful association, MassMEDIC.
