Medical Device Industry
Georgia ranks in the top 10 markets across the United States for Medical Technology investments. To support this growing industry, GaMEP partners with two other Georgia Tech programs, the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) and the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI), to form the Center for MedTech Excellence (CMTE). This grant-funded collaboration, serves medical device companies, including start-ups and established firms, helping to bring innovative healthcare products to market, grow the MedTech ecosystem of Georgia, and enhance the economic well-being of the state.
As part of the Center for MedTech Excellence, GaMEP provides grant-funded services to medical device companies ready to pilot, launch, or scale their product. GaMEP’s MedTech project manager, Dean Hettenbach, provides connections to subject matter experts and serves as a trusted advisor to companies in the MedTech program.
