Nua Surgical has emerged as the only non-US company to be selected for a prestigious health-tech accelerator in Texas.
The Texas Medical Center Innovation (TMCi) announced the names of eight start-ups this week that have been selected for the 15th cohort of its HealthTech accelerator in spring 2023. The six-month programme supports digital health and medical device start-ups by bringing them together at the TMC Innovation Factory in Houston and connecting them with experts from different markets.
This helps the start-ups with clinical collaborations, increased fundraising opportunities and builds new relationships with TMCi’s network of institutions.
Speaking to Silicon Republic, Barry McCann, CEO, said that being part of the latest TMCi accelerator is a “huge opportunity” for the start-up because TMC is one of the world’s largest medical centres with more 10m patient interactions each year. It is home to over 60 health institutions and has over 100,000 staff on campus each day.
