If you are looking for suitable partners to bring your idea or startup to life, Medical Valley GmbH can co-found startups as a startup factory. This means, for example, if you are a doctor or researcher with ideas that are ready for commercialization, but you wish to remain a doctor or researcher, we can – in selected cases -, jointly found a startup. In the last three years we have actively participated in three medical technology startups and have taken on management duties.
To successfully launch your medical device on the market, a precise and accurate planning of your regulatory strategy is indispensable.
