The Center for Advancing Point of Care Technologies (CAPCaT) in Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Disorders is pleased to present its first showcase in this public, virtual forum. The focus will be on big company/little company strategic partnerships and the stage will be set for new, mutually beneficial connections to be made.
Innovators, investors, academics, students, and anyone, anywhere, interested in the future direction of vital point-of-care medtech are invited and welcome to attend.
What to expect:
The morning will start off with strategic and venture capital investors reviewing live pitch presentations from six awardees who have received grant funding from CAPCaT since its inception in 2018:
* OWL – Mobile health chronic pain management
* NeatCap – Passive noise protection systems for premature infants in the NICU
* JanaCare - Bio-marker assisted chronic disease management
* SubC Inc – Rapid POC platelet function test
* Respirix – Non-invasive cardiopulmonary monitoring (a 2019 $200K Challenge Winner)
* Sanguina – Anemia detection
Later in the morning, the format will shift to a panel presentation specifically aimed at preparing startups for strategic, "big company/little company" partnerships. The panel will share real examples and explain the how, what, why, when, and where of strategic partnerships in a dynamic, engaging exchange. Attendees will be encouraged to participate via an online Q&A portal.
