Foley Partners Gabor Garai and Larry Vernaglia are pleased to host the V4 Global B2B Tour and Medtech/Healthtech Startup Pitch Competition in Boston on Monday, May 7, in partnership with Startup Campus and the Hungarian National Trading House’s Innotrade Program.
The mission of the Startup Campus V4 Global B2B Tour is to boost the discoverability of the regional startup ecosystem and highlight the economic and innovation potential of the Visegrad Group (V4), a cultural and political alliance of four Central European nations – Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.
The tour’s weeklong stop along the East Coast focuses on the health care industry vertical and invites selected medtech and healthtech startups from the V4 region to participate in B2B meetings and programs planned in collaboration with local partners in Boston and New York City.
Foley is pleased to showcase these startups in our Boston office on Monday, May 7, during a pitch competition that is free and open to the public. Each startup will present a 10-minute pitch, followed by a Q&A session with a judges panel. Upon hearing from all participants, the judges will deliberate and announce the winner.
Please plan to join us for this unique event, and show your support for the local health care and life sciences industries as well as the global startup community! Plus, take advantage of an update on health care in the United States before the start of the pitch competition, and stay after to connect with the startups and other industry guests during a networking reception.
There is no fee to attend this event, but advance registration is required. Please let us know if you can attend by clicking here.
