Congratulations to emerging digital health startups Ora Medical and Puzzle Medical Devices for winning awards at the Montreal Startup Community Awards 2022
As advocates for the Montreal digital health and medical technology ecosystem we at BML Technology pay close attention to the latest developments particularly those concerning startups because to a large extent they face the greatest challenges. The runway is short, the cash burn is high. We get it.
Montreal is home to many exciting medical technology startups developing the digital health solutions of tomorrow and we have the privilege of working backstage with a number of them.
In that spirit we wish to congratulate Ora Medical and Puzzle Medical Devices, two emerging Montreal based digital health startups for winning the Rising Startup of the year and Champion Startup of the year awards respectively at the recently held Montreal Startup Community Awards.
Rising Startup of the year:
Ora Medical is creating data-driven physical rehab solutions.
Champion Startup of the year:
Puzzle Medical Devices is developing a minimally invasive long-term hemodynamic transcatheter pump: ModulHeart™.
But the Montreal startup ecosystem is far larger than digital health. Montreal is recognized as having one of the most vibrant startup and early stage ecosystems in North America comprising high caliber institutions, companies, organizations and a deep talent pool of dynamic entrepreneurs and talented professionals.
About the Montreal Startup Community Awards
The Montreal Startup Community Awards (SCA) is a celebration from the startup community, by the community and for the community; it honours those who build the ecosystem day after day. It is also a perfect illustration of the type of collaboration taking place in the Montreal startup ecosystem as the event was co-organized by three leading startup support and development organizations: Montreal NewTech, OSMO Foundation and Startupfest.
About Ora Medical

Their goal is to reduce the lack of access to rehabilitation services for people with limited mobility. Ora Medical accelerates the rehabilitation of people with reduced mobility by implementing a new approach to care based on patient progress data. In other words, optimized clinical outcomes.
