Tufts MedStart is an innovative healthcare conference combining keynote speakers and panels of industry experts with time to pitch startup ideas and network with other attendees. It will take place over two days, allowing participants to hear prominent speakers in the field, engage in conversation and share ideas about a range of healthcare topics. This year, we aim to inspire participants and provide resources for future entrepreneurship.

Pitching Sessions: We will conclude the event on Saturday with pitching and team formation. We will explain this process in more detail at the event but don't worry if you don't have an idea or desire to join a team. You will still be able to make meaningful connections with individuals across the health care industry landscape and help brainstorm during team formation. We have formed partnerships with the Tufts $100K New Ventures Competition and the Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge. It is in your best interest to register with us at the end of the event, as teams that form at MedStart will recieve special consideration in one or both of these competitions. More details on these competitions will be presented at the event.
