Boston Will Play Big Role in National Medtech Meeting in Minneapolis

Daylong Event Celebrates Sector’s Resilience, Strong Sign for Future Growth

Two Medtech leaders with strong ties in Massachusetts will anchor the upcoming national Medtech Conference scheduled for June 1 in Minneapolis.

Michael Mahoney, CEO, president, and chairman of Boston Scientific Corp., will lead off the day with a keynote interview to discuss how the Marlborough-based company is positioned for future growth.

Later in the same day, Joe Almeida, chairman, CEO, and president of Baxter International Inc., will share his vision for that global giant. Almeida, of course, headed Covidien Ltd., which had US headquarters in Mansfield prior to its acquisition by Medtronic.

The daylong event – entering its 16th year – connects Medtech’s leading entrepreneurs, executives, and investors from across the US, drawing heavily from both the East and West Coasts as well as burgeoning Medtech hubs in the Midwest.

“Registration for this year’s event is outpacing past events,” says Craig Simak, CEO of Healthegy. “This is a sure sign of Medtech’s resilience. Entrepreneurs are emerging from established hubs like Boston, but also from new epicenters of innovation. And they’re finding capital from new sources.”

Conference delegates will be invited to hear and participate in several critical conversations about raising funds, finding corporate partners, streamlining approval through the FDA and understanding the risks of securing reimbursement in the US and overseas.

The Medtech Conference is an industry-led meeting. This year’s co-chairs are Kevin Hykes, operating partner at Versant Ventures and chairman and CEO of Metavention Inc., and Stacy Enxing Seng, a former Covidien executive who is now a venture partner with Lightstone Ventures.

The Medtech Conference’s advisory board includes leaders from Amphora Medical, the Fogarty Institute for Innovation, Holaira, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Mitralign, New Enterprise Associates, Outset Medical, Piper Jaffray, Sightline Partners, Versant Ventures, and Windham Venture Partners.

Healthegy is creating dynamic content and can’t miss events to help the true leaders of healthcare’s reform to pinpoint problems and identify solutions. The company delivers innovative and influential content and events in Medtech, Digital Health, and Ophthalmology.
