Background on the Blueprint MedTech Incubator Hubs Program

Innovators developing groundbreaking medical device technologies face several challenges along the translational path from bench to bedside. The NIH Blueprint MedTech Incubator Hubs aim to address such challenges by accelerating the development of cutting-edge medical devices to diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system. This program will catalyze the translation of novel neurotechnologies from early-stage development to a human-grade prototype ready for first-in-human-testing and will provide: (a) non-dilutive funds to support medical device development activities led by investigators, (b) ongoing, specialized support from experienced executive mentors, and (c) additional resources and support services. The Center for Innovative NeuroTech Advancement (CINTA) and NeuroTech Harbor (NTH) are two NIH-funded incubator hubs that will provide direct funding and critical resources to innovator teams. As a hub partner, VentureWell is seeking professional service providers to be part of a qualified pool from which these resources are selected to achieve team-specific milestones. Ultimately, the objective of hub support is to develop and de-risk these groundbreaking technologies to the point where additional investments are warranted from industry partners, investors, and government.
