MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Nationally-ranked startup accelerator gener8tor has announced the five companies participating in its gBETA Medtech Spring 2022 cohort. gBETA Medtech’s Spring 2022 cohort kicked off on April 20th and the program will culminate on June 21st, 2022 at “Showcase Day,” which will highlight each
of the five companies.
Out of the 140+ companies that applied to the program, the gBETA Medtech Spring 2022 cohort selected five companies: Mother of Fact, OmnVis, Q-rounds, SingleTimeMicroneedles and Tiumed. (See company details below.)
This cohort features founders from across the country with expertise in medical devices, diagnostics, testing, and digital health solutions.
gBETA Medtech is a free, seven-week accelerator that works with medical devices, healthcare-related software, biotech and diagnostics startups for no fees and no equity. Each gBETA program is capped at five companies to ensure meaningful engagement with program partners and other resources. Participants receive intensive, individualized coaching and access to gener8tor’s national network of mentors, customers, corporate partners and investors. The program is designed to help startups gain early customer traction on their product or idea, and establish metrics that can make them competitive applicants for full-time, equity-based accelerators or seed investment.
gBETA Medtech is a program of UEL and gener8tor. Boston Scientific is the founding partner of the gBETA
Medtech. The cohort receives mentorship support from Mayo Clinic, Medical Alley Association and University of Minnesota. UEL and gener8tor also receive support through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ BARDA DRIVe.
“We’re so fortunate to have such a diverse set of founders with expertise across the healthcare continuum,” said KC Caine, gBETA Director for the Medtech program. “Our founders are bringing high-impact innovations to the sector, and we’re excited to see how their companies grow.” After the 7-week program, the Showcase Day virtual event will provide an opportunity for the public to listen and learn more about the startups and network with the founders and other community members. Stay tuned for more information.
