Brand LA's Partner MedTech Color Announces 2023 Pitch Competition Finalists

MedTech Color (MTC) announced the top 10 finalists of this year's Pitch Competition. The annual initiative serves as an industry platform to support African American and Hispanic founders in Medtech, seeking to bring B2B and B2C products and services to market.

The 2023 finalists, who were chosen from a pool of almost 100 nationwide applicants, will have an opportunity to compete for much-needed funding on March 3, 2023 at BioscienceLA in Culver City, CA, where the Pitch Competition will take place.

In the weeks prior to the anticipated event, MTC's industry and community partners will facilitate expert guidance through bespoke sessions that can further prepare the entrepreneurs for the common challenges and business dynamics ahead.

This year, Brand LA is one of the organizations involved in MedTech Color's Pitch Competition Bootcamp. In addition to the February 15th presentation to the 2023 cohort, the nonprofit will also offer one of the special prizes that made the cut to support the top ten Pitch Competition finalists and top winners. The innovators are also eligible for cash and in-kind benefits, as part of the program, offered by more than ten of MTC's industry partners.
