Learn the “why” behind our Why Medtech campaign with MassMEDIC President, Brian Johnson.
Massachusetts and the New England area have the largest concentration of medical device OEMs and start-ups in the U.S., paired with a significant number of academic institutions driving innovation and research. An essential part to our economy, the medtech industry represents one out of every four products exported by the Commonwealth and employs more than 25,000 workers directly and tens of thousands more with service providers who support the industry. Our region leads the country in medical device exports and ranks second in the nation in FDA 510(k) clearances and pre-market approvals (PMA), patents, venture funding, and total venture deals.
Our industry is essential and growing. We must continue to recruit new talent in order to support ongoing innovation. Now is the time to leverage our united strength to bolster the industry by creating awareness of the rewarding and exciting opportunities that exist within our industry.
