MedTech Innovator announced today that Evren was among the 50 companies selected for its flagship showcase and accelerator program. Evren is also among the subset of 25 companies selected for MedTech’s accelerator program.
“We are honored to be selected as a member of the accelerator cohort from the more than 1,100 applications from 54 countries and 42 U.S. states - an acceptance rate of only two percent,” said Blythe Karow, Evren’s President & CEO. “We are looking forward to receiving in-depth, customized mentorship and support with industry leaders and connecting with others in this distinguished accelerator program.”
The four-month MedTech program offers visibility and access to leading manufacturers, providers, investors, and other industry stakeholders, with up to $500,000 available in cash and in-kind prizes during the final competition at The MedTech Conference, powered by AdvaMed, scheduled for September 27-30, 2021. All 50 companies will present in showcase panels and will have access to partnering and roundtables. Five startups from the accelerator program will compete for the Execution Award, while another five companies will advance to the Grand Final competition. An audience vote determines the Grand Final winner, which will earn a $350,000 grand prize.
