  • Inventors often have difficulty marshaling the initial resources necessary to develop and advance their promising medical device ideas
  • To address this problem, the Penn Center for Innovation (PCI) and PCI Ventures team have created the DevelUPmed Challenge to identify commercially viable medical device ideas
  • Top ideas, as judged by business and technology experts, will be turned into companies and partnered with university resources, entrepreneurs, industry developers and the regional investment community to support business operations, capital acquisition strategy and prototype development, on a path towards full commercialization and healthcare improvement
