Brought to you by Asia Pacific Medical Technology Association (APACMed)


A rapidly ageing population and growing affluence are fuelling the demand for quality MedTech products. Despite strong market demand, MedTech startups and SMEs may still lack the knowledge and support in product commercialisation, partly as a result of the highly complex and regulated environment. The MedTech Workshop for Start-ups and SMEs 2018 aims to provide practical, hands-on guidance and deep insights to help MedTech startups and SMEs transition new discoveries from the bench to prototyping, clinical trials & product validation, regulatory approval, commercialisation and post-market surveillance.


Forward-looking MedTech startups and SMEs will learn about the opportunities and challenges of going to market – locally or internationally – and dealing with unfamiliar regulations, patent laws, reimbursement schemes, legal systems, and sales/marketing and financing environments. Whether you plan to introduce a new medical technology into the market, have a disruptive technology or have developed a lifesaving medical device, the workshop aims to help break down barriers to innovation and let you do what you do best – innovate and develop cost-effective solutions to address the region's unmet healthcare needs.


Startups and SMEs are the backbone of the MedTech industry in the Asia Pacific, and they will continue to gain new ground and lead the way to improved healthcare systems and patient outcomes. Join us at the MedTech Workshop for Start-ups and SMEs 2018, held in conjunction with Medical Fair Asia on August 30th, 2018 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore!
