The medical device industry has several geographic pockets. Memphis, TN is one of these, especially in orthopedics.
I recently read about this medical device accelerator located in Memphis called ZeroTo510. They seem to have all the key pieces for a medical device concept to get off the starting blocks. Part incubator, part educator, part investor, part mentor. The program is geared towards helping medical device inventors and entrepreneurs get to a FDA 510(k) submission, while providing guidance and direction along the way
While I have no idea how successful this program has been, the model is very intriguing. So much so that I wonder if something like this could be piloted in central Indiana.
