Meet the leaders helping to define the next big innovations in medtech — and the program that’s helping them do it. MassDevice.com editor Sarah Faulkner spoke with seven participants of the MassMedic IGNITE cohort to learn about how the mentorship program has already aided in accelerating their successes.
After a five-year hiatus, MassMedic’s IGNITE mentorship and training program for medtech startups was relaunched this year under the leadership of Brian Johnson. The program, which initially kicked off in 2004, features a number of well-known names in the medical device industry, including John McDonough, president & CEO of T2 Biosystems, and Jim Biggins, founder & CEO of Access Vascular.
The IGNITE program’s 2019 cohort includes 16 startup founders, seven of which are women. The seven women in the group spoke to MassDevice.com to share the stories behind their companies and how the IGNITE program has helped them thus far.
