VenoStent @ Texas New Ventures Competition
On May 17, 2018, VenoStent participated in the Texas New Ventures Competition which hosted companies from across the country at various stages of development - some very early-stage, others well-capitalized and more mature - to compete in a pitch competition for a variety of prizes.
We are excited and grateful to have been awarded (1) automatic entrance into the exceptional TMCx accelerator, based out of TMC Innovation and (2) in-kind IP services from Thomas Horstemeyer, LLP, a boutique Intellectual Property law firm based out of Atlanta.
Located in the TMC Innovation Institute, the program provides startup companies with shared workspace, a curriculum tailored to the needs of health care entrepreneurs and the guidance of over 120 advisors from the front lines of the industry. Companies have access to the world’s largest medical center, all without membership fees or equity sharing.
Participants further develop their companies by attending a variety of workshops and hands-on events to gain insights from experts in every facet of running a health-related business: clinical trials, FDA regulations, HIPAA/HITECH compliance, hospital procurement, commercial pilots, intellectual property, licensing, fundraising, marketing and other critical areas.
In addition, participants work with the TMCx team to refine strategies and build relationships across the Texas Medical Center. Companies network with key thought leaders and mentors during the Advisor Pitch Event, the TMC Expert Forum and other scheduled sessions. The four-month program culminates with TMCx Demo Day, an exclusive presentation to hundreds of investors, corporate partners, hospital stakeholders, media and other guests.
The TMCx team’s goal is to quickly and effectively connect entrepreneurs to stakeholders.
