MedTech Market Growth Program Recipients Unveiled


Last Updated: Monday 1 July

LaunchVic is helping medtech startups accelerate their path to market with the MedTech Market Growth Program, a collaboration with the Australian Medtech Manufacturing Centre.  

Minister for Jobs and Industry Natalie Hutchins today announced the 20 grant recipients under the Victorian Government’s Medtech Market Growth Program, who will each receive $50,000 funding to access the skills, services and resources they need to take their life-saving products to market.

The matched funding provides working capital to assist medtech startups to develop their go-to-market value proposition, helping to bridge the gap between the development of products and getting them into hospitals and healthcare services.
