Medtronic APAC Innovation Challenge (MAIC)

Medtronic, a global leader in healthcare technology, invites Australian businesses to participate in the newly launched Medtronic APAC Innovation Challenge (MAIC). Providing an opportunity for innovators in the region to pitch and advance their development of MedTech solutions, the challenge also provides an opportunity to partner with Medtronic for a commercial pilot on their proposed MedTech, digital health or solution, valued up to US$200,000.

Medtronic is seeking MedTech solutions that support one of four areas: Life Transforming Technologies, Better Outcomes for All, Experiences that Put People First and Insight Driven Care. Businesses that fit these areas and have a commercialised product/service are encouraged to apply to MAIC.

The Challenge allows short-listed participants to further develop and innovate their solutions with the guidance of Medtronic.

The top five winners of the MAIC will have the opportunity to partner with Medtronic to explore joint commercialisation of products and/or run commercial pilots for their proposed MedTech or digital health product solutions.

The final round of the Challenge is scheduled for the first quarter of 2022 alongside the Medtronic Asia Innovation Conference that will be hosted at Medtronic’s regional headquarters in Singapore.

The Medtronic APAC Innovation Challenge is accepting submissions now until 26 November.
