This year 18 teams were selected to participate in the BiomedX bootcamp focused on commercializing medical technologies. The course included 34 principal investigators (engineering, life sciences, clinical) and 23 graduate students (engineering, MBA, MD, DMD) enrolled for credit and embedded on the project teams.
On Tuesday, April 24th, teams of Columbia engineers, clinicians, scientists and students working to bring cutting-edge biomedical technologies to market will pitch their envisioned technologies and business opportunities to a panel of judges and invited guests for potential commercialization support.
Columbia BiomedX Pitch Day is the capstone event following a semester long “boot camp,” during which project teams explored two fundamental questions: 1) Does the envisioned product address a true unmet clinical need? and 2) Is there a viable business opportunity? These are the same questions judges will have in mind as they select projects to fund.
We are excited about the 2018 applicant projects and look forward to seeing you on April 24th.
Please RSVP to attend pitch day.
