What is IMPACT?

The M2D2 IMPACT program is a 12-week accelerator program that will run for 6 cycles. The program aims to advance early-stage companies looking to reshape the future of healthcare. Selected companies will have the opportunity to engage with our sponsors' specialized research calls to help advance their business.

IMPACT Cycle 3 Prize Sponsors:

At the Cycle 3 Pitch-Off, we have two organizations that will present prizes to a select few IMPACT startups in Cohort 3.

Upteaming, a networking platform that connects users with 3-4 peers at their experience level, will provide their prize recipients with 3 months of access to their platform. As growing startups and busy entrepreneurs, the winners can work through difficult problems and ask questions of people in similar positions.

PQE Group is an ISO 9001-certified technology solutions and compliance consulting services company for the life sciences industry, providing global capabilities deliverable throughout the entire product quality life cycle.

PQE is happy to be partnering with M2D2 this year and offering one winning company a complementary assessment. This assessment will utilize PQE’s global subject matter experts to examine the company’s Go to Market Strategy and identify potential gaps that would prevent the product from receiving US market release, US reimbursement, or Global market release while also providing suggested remediations. This exercise has helped other companies not only optimize and expedite their pathway to market but also increase potential fundraising.

Life Science Nation, a global partnering ecosystem for early-stage companies, is pleased to award a premier registration and pitch slot at the upcoming RESI Boston, September 20-22 at the Westin Copley. Originally valued at $2995, the award includes a 3-day registration with the premier partnering upgrade and a guaranteed spot to pitch at the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge.
