You can find the preliminary list of participating companies below:

AdjuCor is a high-tech medical device company that owns and is responsible for the development, production, marketing and selling of disruptive platform technology for the treatment of patients with advanced heart failure (HF), namely reBEAT.


AMT Medical has developed a cardiovascular device for minimal invasive coronary bypass surgery. Based on the same technology, the experienced team has already developed a similar device for neurosurgery and brought this successfully to the market in the US and Europe, saving lives of thousands brain patients. In 2017-2019, AMT Medical finished the preclinical product design and development, which were successfully proven in in vivo PoC and validation studies in a porcine bypass model.


Aortyx designs and develops a new generation of biocompatible and bioabsorbable patches to treat aortic diseases. The patches are implanted using a specifically designed endovascular catheter. Aortyx patches mimic the mechanical properties of the intervened tissue, facilitating its regeneration and guaranteeing superior surgical outcomes compared to those achieved with currently used devices.


Healium Medical focuses on significantly simplifying the rapid growing market of ablation procedures with advanced miniaturized ultrasound guided therapeutic technology. Their technology, Dual-Mode Ultrasound Technology (DMUT) is intended for non-contact, continuous ablation therapy with real-time tissue monitoring. DMUT delivers precise ultrasonic energy for safe and rapid lesion placement via miniature transcatheter ultrasound technology and advanced signal and image processing.


Nimble Diagnostics is developing the first medical device to monitor patients with implanted stents non­ invasively, independent of stent type or location, in less than 5 seconds and thus facilitating preventive care and eliminating the need for confirmatory surgery, X-ray radiation and hospitalization for millions of patients.


Xeltis is a medtech company developing transformative implants that enable the natural creation of living and long-lasting vessels and valves. Xeltis’ devices seek to address the limitations of currently available options for the millions of people requiring hemodialysis access grafts or cardiovascular replacements every year. The Company’s proprietary endogenous tissue restoration (ETR) platform utilizes an advanced polymer implant which regenerates the patient’s own tissue within and around it, before gradually being absorbed and leaving new, living and long-lasting vessels and valves in place.
