PitchRounds Format

The PitchRounds at the 2018 SEMDA Medtech Conference is a different than previous years. This year, instead of offering pre-set one-on-one meetings with investors, we're breaking companies into two groups, Group 1: Start-up and "seed" companies, and Group 2: Later-stage at Series A or later. 

Early-stage Companies
  • Present their product/idea to a panel and receive feedback
  • Panel would include an investor, IP, Regulatory, Reimbursement, etc.
  • Poster in the exhibit hall area during Exhibit reception to talk with attendees, investors, judges, etc.
  • Two companies ill be selected to present on the second day
    • Attendees will be a part of this selection process   
  • $10,000 prize money for the winner, chosen by the judges during lunch on the second day 
Later-stage companies: 
  • Present their company during breakout sessions on the first day
  • Option for panel and/or poster, if desired and depending on time/space.
  • Two selected to present on stage on day 2
  • Winner selected by judges and announced during lunch on the second day
Please let us know if you have any questions.
