Event Summary

The medical device space is exploding in West Michigan. The local talent pool, companies, and supporting ecosystem keep this a vibrant and growing piece of Michigan’s economy.

Join us Wednesday, February 18th at the MSU Medical School to learn about pieces of the industry you have always wondered about. If you are in the industry, it will be a chance to learn about parts of the process you may not touch.

If you have an idea for a medical device or technology or are interested in getting into the field professionally, you’ll learn about what it takes to bring a great idea to market and the skills needed to do it.

There will be live demonstrations of rapid prototyping from The Geek Group throughout the event. There will be prototypes and samples to interact with too.

You will rotate through a series of three presentations and Q&A’s before ending up back where you began.
