Turning MedTech Ideas Into Action

PulseLine sat down with The Actuator’s Buzz Palmer to talk about MedTech startups, and the Actuator’s #MedTechsGotTalent initiative

The Actuator is Australia’s premier medical technology commercialisation initiative: priming, augmenting and developing our state-based innovation ecosystems through a nationally-focused strategy. The Actuator employs a unique, powerful and differentiated approach that:

  1. is industry-led;
  2. activates players across the entire innovation spectrum;
  3. augments local ecosystems; and
  4. fosters an unwavering technology commercialisation focus.

Wherever an idea or venture is on the commercialisation pathway, the Actuator has a program designed to smooth its journey and accelerate its development, with a mission to catapult Australia into its rightful place at the head of the global innovation race. They are also home to Australia’s largest and longest-standing early-stage MedTech startup entrepreneurship program – MedTech’s Got Talent

The Actuator has announced the opening of round 2 of its Actuator Accelerator – the nation’s first industry-led, VC-backed 15-month Medtech acceleration program which simultaneously accelerates technology development, builds team capability and provides a pathway to $2.7 million in equity funding. Applications close on 27th April for a July 2018 intake.
