SNITEM Start-up day

Posted on 06.02.2020

Organised by SNITEM (the French association for medical devices) and ranked as the benchmark of the French health startup ecosystem, the sixth edition of the Innovative Medical Device Startup Day will be held on 12 May at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris. The event will offer exchanges and debates around regulatory strategy, market access, key steps to create a startup and sources of project financing, etc.

Key features of the event include:
• Start-up area: as in 2018 & 2019, the startup jury will select a dozen start-ups showcased at the Espace Innovation, on the same level as the B to B meetings. These 12 companies in the spotlight will pitch their ideas throughout the Day until the jury prize and the public’s “coup de coeur” prize are awarded;
• B to B area: a large space dedicated to B to B meetings where the 1000 attendees (start-ups, Medical Device manufacturers, institutions, investors, competitiveness clusters, lawyers, etc.) can discuss their projects together and initiate new collaborations.
• Additionnally and for the first time this year, a dedicated area will be focused on “Employment & Competencies” with a job dating, and workshops on HR issues for start-ups.

The participation is free and the language of the event is French. For more information, visit the start-up day website.
