Medical technology companies from across the country will flock to Baltimore to compete in the 2023 MedTech Innovator Road Tour , the industry’s premiere showcase and competition for innovative technologies.

This will be the first time the MedTech Innovator Road Tour is held in Maryland. The road tour was initially slated to come to Maryland in 2020 but was derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, for three days in March, Baltimore will become the epicenter of an industry focused on cutting-edge medical devices and diagnostic tools. MedTech Innovator will only host two U.S. pitch events this year, one in Los Angeles at the beginning of March, and one in Baltimore at the end of March.

“We outcompeted all the other East Coast cities to host this event,” said Stefanie Trop, senior manager of business development in the Office of Life Sciences, Maryland Department of Commerce. “This shows the industry that Maryland’s life sciences and medtech communities are really competitive with larger cities on the global stage. We had all the resources needed to attract the world-class event here.”

The MedTech Innovator Road Tour will be held over the course of three days, March 28-30, for the top startups that applied to the programs to pitch to a well-established network of judges from across the industry. The first day of the event will feature a newer program under the MedTech Innovator umbrella, BioTools Innovator, for startups developing life sciences tools and molecular diagnostics. The last two days will be dedicated to the long-running MedTech Innovator program, for companies commercializing medical devices and digital health solutions. In all, approximately 75 invited startups of over 1,300 applicants will participate over the three-day event.
