PITCH BOOTCAMP ACCELERATOR
What is the Pitch Bootcamp?
The Pitch Bootcamp Accelerator program is a structured 8 week training program that culminates in a 7-minute on-stage pitch to the MedTech’s investor club.
Companies selected by representatives of our Board and faculty, are invited to join a training program comprised of lectures, workshops and personal mentorship from our member pool.
Meetings of up to 5hrs take place weekly in Raanana with 3-4 sessions per meeting.
We focus on topics relevant to regulated healthcare startups: marketing strategy, market analysis, financial strategy, IP, regulatory strategy, reimbursement, clinical trials, board formation, hiring, presentation skills and pitching to investors.
Who can apply?
1 – Companies/Entrepreneurs with product related to the Biomed Industry including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biologics, combined products, health IT (regulated products only)
2 – Presenting companies must have a clear definition of their product preferably with proof of concept (not an idea, a technology or a service)
3 – Companies should have IP in preparation or submitted
The program fee is 1,750ILS (+VAT) per company which is used to cover costs. We do not take equity and do not charge any hidden fees.
The Bootcamp participants compete in the final Pitch Investor presentation for a package of services provided by our sponsors.
Being part of the BEF showcase gave IAPmed a unique opportunity to present and get in touch with the impressive group of outstanding people, mentors and investors. I highly recommend applying to the program.
This is a great program. It is specifically for biotechnology and pharma companies which is great. They work hard to provide the companies access to resources while preparing each company to pitch in front of the right investor. I believe that it will provide your company with valuable insights and experiences which may just be what your company needs.

Even after winning MassChallenge and participating in the 8200 accelerator, I gained a lot from the Bootcamp especially due to its focus on the Medical field and the implications of launching a device that requires regulation and strategic decisions that are different from other industries.
Winning the Pitch competition launched us well into our fundraising round. It was an honor to receive our certificate from the Mayor of Raanana

The investors event is a great time saver and gives you the chance to expose your company to many relevant investors in one evening

I have to admit that we have learned a lot and we feel now much more organized to face investors or VC and to display them our project. The idea of being part of other entrepreneurs and being together at the same camp, that really strengthens us to see that we are a privileged family of "hardheaded" to do the impossible to make our vision coming true.

The program was a great opportunity to meet entrepreneurs in different stages of their venture, and many experts in their respective fields. Fascinating lectures from experienced professionals
Simon and I wanted to thank you for 8 weeks in which we made a substantial leap. Thank you personally as well as the mentors and network you introduced us to. The way in which we and the other startups pitched on Thursday's investor event demonstrates for the progress we made at the MedTech Bootcamp.
Q – How do I know if the bootcamp is right for me?
A – Ask our alumni and consult with our team – if you are an early stage Healthcare startup trying to tell your story, looking for guidance, funding, connections or just want to learn how to stand onstage and pitch to 100 investors – then this program is right for you!
Q – How successful are your alumni?
A – We have had 6 cycles of our bootcamp with 7 companies in each. Five of our alumni have completed their A round and two are still raising funds. Five companies received seed funding during or after their bootcamp program and four of our alumni have gone into Israel Innovation Authority incubator programs. Some of our alumni have pivoted and/or are working on their next fundable milestone.
Q – Do you take equity for bootcamp participants?
A – We do not take equity for the bootcamp, there is a fee associated with the program
