Join the 2nd Annual Pitch Competition taking place on March 8th, 2022

African American and Hispanic entrepreneurs receive less than 1% of venture capital funding. MedTech Color is working to change that through the continuation of our annual Pitch Competition program.

The MedTech Color Pitch Competition searches for the next generation of fearless founders innovating and diversifying Medtech. African American and Hispanic founders are the fastest-growing demographics of entrepreneurs throughout history. These founders are best equipped to solve some of the world’s largest unmet needs. However, African American and Hispanic entrepreneurs are met with the greatest barriers to accessing capital.

Launched in 2021, MedTech Color teamed up with industry-leading sponsors like Johnson & Johnson, ResMed, California Health Foundation, and others to award over $425K to date in non-dilutive capital and in-kind services to African American and Hispanic Founders to accelerate the growth of their Medtech startup. The MedTech Color Pitch Competition is a foundational start for medical technology early-stage startups creating innovative technologies. We’re looking for cutting-edge startups led by African American and Hispanic founders to take the stage for a virtual competition, showcase their products or services that will directly benefit patients, and tell their story of WHY. 

We believe in a brighter future where the next world changing business does not go unrealized.

MedTech Color is an organization that aims to advance the representation of persons of color in the medical device industry. We aim to build a cohesive community of leaders of color, increase the number of underrepresented executives who enter and stay in the industry, and drive thought leadership.

Join us March 3, 2023 for our 3rd Annual MedTech Color Pitch Competition!
