3rd Annual MedTech Color Pitch Competition

March 03, 2023

The MedTech Color Pitch Competition is a foundational start for medical technology early-stage startups creating innovative technologies. They're looking for cutting-edge startups led by African American and Hispanic founders to take the stage for a live competition, showcase their products or services that will directly benefit patients, and tell their story of WHY. 

African American and Hispanic founders are the fastest-growing demographics of entrepreneurs throughout history. These founders are best equipped to solve some of the world’s largest unmet needs. However, African American and Hispanic entrepreneurs are met with the greatest barriers to accessing capital.

NIH is committed to supporting diversity in life science leadership, and the MTC Pitch Competition can be a jump start for diversity founded/led medical technology early-stage startups.

NIH SEED is proud to support the MedTech Color Pitch Competition for a second year. 

NIH-funded Tanzen Medical, Inc., is a Top 10 Finalist! Cheer them on to victory on Friday, March 3!  Also, Meet NIH Entrepreneur in Residence Luis Gutierrez, a judge for the competition.

* All times are Pacific.

Time: 11:00AM EST - 2:00PM EST
