Centech supports high-tech companies and projects with high growth potential, from conceptualization to commercialization. They do this by providing a number of programs and services to startups that include resources, support, and top level mentorship from active industry professionals to help them transform their innovative ideas into successful businesses.

In the past five years more than 100 companies have taken part in Centech’s Acceleration and Propulsion startup programs.

Centech’s exceptional work and achievements are being recognized on a global scale as Centech was recently named among the World’s Top 10 University Business Incubators in UBI Global’s rankings.

The Winter 2023 Centech Acceleration Cohort is a busy one with 37 startups participating in the 12 week bootcamp. The cohort comprises innovative startups in DeepTech, MedTech, and EdTech. There are nine medical technology companies taking part in the program.

The Medtech Cohort Regulatory Affairs Workshop took place on March 30th from 9AM to 12PM. Centech team leaders and experts including our own Marc Saab lectured the startups on high impact issues affecting their Regulatory Strategy as well as provided feedback on their projects and business models.

The nine medical technology companies in the Winter 2023 Cohort are:
A-DAP, Billmate, FrankSim, Chelles & Hayashi Inc., Future in hand, Kenko, RxPredix, Spinort, LifeEngine Technologies Inc.

BML Technology is a proud long term supporter of Centech’s programs. Our Founder and Managing Director, Marc Saab, is passionate about helping medical technology startups get their digital health solutions to market. He provides guidance and mentoring on the ‘Best practices in medical device regulatory strategy’ to digital health startups on a regular basis and shares his real world Regulatory Affairs expertise to help these young startups avoid the pitfalls they often find themselves in when faced with the safety and efficacy requirements of a regulated industry.

The runway is short and the cash burn is high for medical technology startups. Even great ideas, lots of funding and high technological skills are no guarantee of successfully navigating the Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs process, not to mention clinical integration. Digital health startups must address many important issues simultaneously as they traverse the path towards certification and understand that regulatory compliance strategy begins at the ideation stage.

We are thankful that Marc was able to take part in this event and share his knowledge and look forward to the many innovations and achievements that will surely emanate from the Centech Acceleration Winter 2023 Cohort.
