Deadline Approaching for Medical Device and MDDS Companies Seeking Funding at SEMDA 2013


12/13/2012 9:12:57 AM

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2012) -

There is less than one month remaining for medical device and medical device data system (MDDS) companies seeking funding to apply to present at the Southeastern Medical Device Association's (SEMDA) 7th annual conference. The Conference will be held February 19-20, 2013, at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta.

"We already have a number of very strong companies that have applied to present, so we have increased the number of available slots," said Angela Sinton, Chair of Presenting Companies, Vice Chair of the Conference Committee and Senior Partner of Medical Device Marketing, LLC. "Feedback from last year's presenting companies is that they had a terrific experience working with the SEMDA mentor teams preparing for the Conference and met valuable investors during the Conference, with strong investor follow-up."

"Compared with my past experience as a presenting company at many other venture forums, SEMDA is one of the best organized and most presenter-friendly venture forums I've seen or participated in," said Paul Fitzpatrick, CEO of Advanced Catheter Therapies in Chattanooga, TN.

"The meeting was large enough to be meaningful, and small enough to be intimate," added George Barr, President of Smart Perfusion in Charlotte, NC. "The mentors added clarity to the points I was hoping to make and we made important, key investor contacts."

Applications are available at www.semda.net/conference and are due January 9, 2013. There is no charge to apply, and the cost is just $750 for selected companies, which includes two Conference admissions. Each accepted company will have a mentoring team of industry experts that includes an investor and a CEO, plus experts in legal, commercialization and finance.

A new addition to this year's program is the "Presenting Company SpotLight" award. The winner will be chosen by an independent panel of judges and announced at the end of the conference.

Selected companies will present to seed investors, angel investors, venture capitalists, private equity and corporations specifically focused on medical device and MDDS investment and new technology acquisition. The 2013 Conference will also feature informative programs, 1:1 partnering, a Gala Dinner and opportunities for attendees to make meaningful industry connections.

Early bird registration and sponsorship opportunities are now available. To register or learn more, visit www.semda.net or contact admin@semda.net.
