"In Germany, the topic of founding is becoming increasingly important and luckily there are also more and more offers for young teams.

However, the MedTech Bootcamp is unique in its thematic orientation. It was therefore a great experience and a great opportunity for us to exchange ideas with other teams and experienced players in the field of medical technology. The planning was sophisticated and diversified every day. Simply great!"

Success stories

  • Simon Spiegel, Christian Anton, Helfried Peyrl, Alexander König of Reactive Robotics

    The start-up Reactive Robotics builds robots for very early mobilization (VEM) with its patented, modular technology. Their device will be used in gait rehabilitation of neurological patients and in orthopaedic patients after joint replacement. The method leads to shorter treatments and better chances of recovery. In the MedTech Bootcamp 2014, the team around Alexander König further developed their business model and got into contact with investors. The founders now have a strategic investor on board and can bring the prototype to market maturity.
  • Team Reactive Robotics
  • Team IUVAS
  • Angiolutions

    "Angiolutions" (founded in 2017) is developing a novel vascular graft (A3-Shield), which for the first time allows the treatment of small abdominal aortic aneurysms (BAAs).

    A BAA is a recess of the main artery (aorta) in the abdomen of the human, which in case of a tear (rupture) is associated with a very high mortality. The newly developed A3-Shield abolishes a mechanical growth stimulus for BAAs and thus for the first time enables a low-risk growth-inhibiting treatment.

    At MedTech Bootcamp 2017, Angiolutions continued to work on its business model and finally presented in front of investors. Since then, the founding team has been pleased with a number of diverse acknowledgments and research awards, such as the Jörg Vollmar Prize of the German Society of Vascular Surgery and Vascular Medicine (DGG). In addition, the founder was included in the prestigious Forbes "30under30" list (section "Science & Healthcare").
