TMC Innovation has opened applications for our next Accelerator cohort in 2022.
Through the Accelerator, formerly known as TMCx, the Texas Medical Center continues our commitment to developing relationships with health systems, corporate partners, and startup companies that impact healthcare access, outcomes, and costs.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
The TMC Innovation team supports medical device and digital health companies positioned to work with health systems through engagements including piloting new technologies, conducting clinical studies, and joint development opportunities.
Located within the world’s largest medical center, TMC Innovation is the gateway for startup companies to gain access to the country’s top healthcare institutions. We focus on supporting a company’s progress toward clinical milestones that align with strategic business development. Participants will meet with clinical stakeholders, strategic mentors, and other partners who can help to support progress to a clinical relationship.
WHAT DOES PARTICIPATION ENTAIL?
The Accelerator program requires a leadership team member (founder and/or C-suite) to commit to periodic meetings in order to build and sustain new partnerships. A subset of applicants will be invited to Bootcamp, where meetings with clinical and strategic advisors will inform the final selection of the cohort. Accelerator cohort participants will continue with periodic meetings for the next 6 months. The program does not include educational programming; the focus is centered on partnership development and strategic mentor access.
