2022 Challenge Recap & Winners
Thank you to all who helped us run a successful 2022 $200K Challenge season! See which startups were announced as $200K Challenge Winners in our recap blog post.
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, 15 finalists will become eligible to win a share of our $200,000 purse 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 U.S. government's BARDA DRIVe initiative.
