SCBio and SCRA are collaborating to participate in the Southeastern Medical Device Association’s 2018 conference that will be held in South Carolina for the first time May 2-4, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Greenville.
SCBio is the state’s investor-driven public/private economic development organization.
SCBio and SCRA will present PitchRounds 2018 — a targeted venue for both start-ups and “seed” companies, as well as later-stage organizations to present their ideas, innovations and products to panels of institutional investors, regulatory leaders, venture capital directors, IP experts and others in structured sessions, according to a news release.
Selected participants will receive individual feedback on their presentations and compete for $10,000 in prize money for selected winners. Participating presenters also receive two full conference registrations and access to meet with investors and partners at sessions and networking receptions. Global law firm Eversheds Sutherland is also a co-sponsor of PitchRounds.
Application information is available online. Application deadline is April 13.
“SCBio and our co-sponsors are delighted to make PitchRounds a possibility for South Carolina’s emerging medtech companies to showcase their innovations and solutions, and to directly access investors and industry leaders to gain direct feedback on their innovations,” said Erin Ford, SCBio vice president, in the release. “While entries will be considered from across the entire Southeast and presentation spots are limited, we are confident that South Carolina will be well represented based on the robust pipeline of innovations the South Carolina life sciences community has been working on. We encourage all early and later-stage companies to enter the PitchRounds program and showcase the Palmetto State’s talents.”
