Medical Device or Digital Health?

  • Do you have a hardware component to your solution? Are you still doing preclinical studies and significant product development? > Apply for Medical Device now
  • Are you finished or soon to be finished with product development and regulatory submissions? > Apply in Fall 2019 for Digital Health in 2020

If you are still unsure, we invite you to apply for Medical Device and we will defer your application to Digital Health upon review if needed.

Why TMCx?

A highly-tailored curriculum — This isn’t your typical accelerator curriculum. Our guiding principle for curriculum is if you can Google it, we won’t cover it. We developed lectures, workshops, and panels catered specifically to the needs of medical device companies, with input and participation from health care entrepreneurs, clinical stakeholders, design firms, venture capital, and law firms.

TMCx mentorship ecosystem — TMCx has an expansive network of more than 275 clinical subject-matter experts, hospital administrators, industry partners, venture capitalists, designers, and entrepreneurs. Startups also have access and exposure to TMC corporate partners, including Johnson & Johnson’s JLABS@TMC, J&J Center for Device Innovation and the AT&T Foundry for Connected Health.

An amazing workspace — Housed in TMC Innovation’s 100,000-square-foot campus, startups have a dedicated work space with storage, Wi-Fi, free printing and scanning, and access to conference rooms. Startups will also have access to prototyping facilities at TMCx, and our partners at JLABS, CDI, and AT&T Foundry are equipped with 3D printers and rapid prototyping tools.
