WHAT IS MD START?

Doctor Walking

MD Start is a medical device accelerator based in Paris, France. MD Start strives to develop revolutionary medical technologies based on inventions from clinicians and researchers who do not wish to become entrepreneurs themselves.

MD Start acts as the entrepreneur to develop inventions from a concept to a clinical benefit demonstration through a first-in-man clinical trial. Throughout this process, MD Start funds and develops the projects, as well as carries the inception of new start-up companies.

MD Start is an incubator, a team of entrepreneurs and a fund brought together under the same efficient 3-in-1 "accelerator" structure, dedicated to medical technologies.
