2018 Medical Device Innovation Challenge


The Upstate MIND 2018 Medical Device Innovation Challenge Application period is now open.  If you have a medical device innovation – whether an idea, a napkin drawing, a prototype - or you are an early stage startup company, you can apply.


Applications will be accepted through June 15, 2018.  The Medical Device Innovation Challenge (MDIC) Review Committee will screen applications for the first pass where individuals/teams/startups will be invited to interview with 2 or more MDIC Review Committee members.  A final selection will be made based on these interviews.  A total of 5-7 individuals or companies will be selected to participate in this 6-month, highly intensive and resource-rich mentorship program.
