Inaugural  Issue!
No doubt 2020 will be burned in our memories of the pandemic, but for our MEDA Angels investor group, much was accomplished and with that, have cause for celebration! 

We send out this inaugural issue of our PULSE newsletter to highlight our year's activities so far and to provide a head's up on events that will kick off right at the outset of 2021...just around the corner....
PULSE will be issued periodically spotlighting impactful healthcare news and trends that bear investment implications, always with the customer in mind.  As a group with many in the healthcare field, we represent the potential end-users, so can speak on this reasonably well.  PULSE will also include feature stories and highlight relevant events.

We welcome stories you may wish to share and invite you to join our community!

Startup Advisory Program

We launched a Startup Advisory Program to support seed stage companies with a range of medical & science domain, commercialization, FDA regulatory and reimbursement support and finance guidance.  This is a competitive process: selected startups are those that our own group may ultimately invest in.  Learn more here. We welcome prospects to submit an application!

At the institutional level, we began Advisory services for (1) the pre-eminent National Cancer Institute's Technology Transfer Center whose mission is to assist their scientist-inventors with commercializing their technologies.  Our role is to evaluate the translational potential of their experimental package and (2) the Korea Innovation Center of Washington, DC, a South Korean government-sponsored incubator that provides support to both S. Korean & US startups seeking cross-border business penetration.
