Austin Fast Start: Bio / Med Tech

June 14, 2018 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM (CDT)


Austin Fast Start is a pitch competition with a purpose. Every quarter, we will hear from a new industry and award an unrestricted cash prize and other opportunities to turn these dreams into realities. This quarter is Bio/Med Tech and will feature finalists using technology, products and approaches that maintain or improve health, treat diseases or medical conditions affecting humans.

You'll get the opportunity to see and hear innovators present their ideas and vote for your favorite, as the winner will be selected by the audience. Food and drinks will also be provided.
