About the programme

Programme Overview

Led by Imperial College London, MedTech SuperConnector (MTSC) provides funding, training, advice and access to industry networks. The accelerator programme allows Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to connect with peers from other academic institutions and the networking opportunities they need to help fast-track the translation of their research discoveries.

We are a warm, open and encouraging community that offers researchers, academics and entrepreneurs the support and stimulation they need to turn their medtech ideas into businesses. Running annual accelerator programme intakes throughout the year, we’re always open to hearing from the next wave of medtech innovators.

We have supported over 34 ventures and 65+ ECRs to bring their innovative medical technologies closer to solving today’s biggest healthcare challenges. Covering innovations in skin health to handheld diagnostics – we support technologies ranging from devices to digital healthcare solutions.
