About the Challenge

The $200K Challenge is an annual start-up competition hosted by M2D2 focused on identifying and rewarding disruptive companies in the medical technology and biotechnology industries.

Every year we receive scores of entries from entrepreneurs worldwide. This year, up to 20 finalists will become eligible to win a share of our $200,000purse of sponsor-provided, in-kind services. These services include lab and office space; engineering, product development, legal, regulatory, clinical, and business services. Past winners have been empowered to bring their innovations to life—and to market.

We welcome innovations that address the full range of medical device challenges, and this year we\’re especially interested in ideas that can benefit from our association with the BARDA DRIVe initiative.
