AdvaMed Accel Leadership Seminar - Part IV: Alternative Funding Sources Fueling Small Company Innovations
While overall venture investing in medtech has increased in recent years, the majority of this capital flows to larger and later stage deals with established venture-backed companies. This leaves startups and small growth companies with limited funding options to advance their innovations beyond product development to clinical validation, adoption and commercialization. Alternative sources of funding (including family offices, angel networks, contract manufacturing organizations and large company R&D groups) are stepping into this gap and investing in early and growth stage medtech companies.
