Support and Resources for Physician Innovators/Entrepreneurs

Dec. 18, 2017

Physician innovators can take advantage of programming at the 2018 AGA Tech Summit designed to support their needs.

Note: Submission deadline has been extended to Feb. 12, 2018.

The AGA Tech Summit plays an integral role in our initiative to support GI innovation and move the field forward. More importantly, it has become a forum where physician innovators/entrepreneurs can receive meaningful, candid feedback through programming that is designed to further support their growth and development.

If you’re looking to showcase your novel GI medical device/technology or need additional guidance on the review/approval process, AGA encourages you to take advantage of these resources offered at the 2018 AGA Tech Summit.

  • AGA Shark Tank
    Pitch your GI medical device/technology to a panel of experts and compete for the crown of “top GI technology to watch.” This is a unique opportunity to network, establish key relationships, receive greater exposure in the GI community and hear firsthand exactly what’s needed to help your concept achieve likely success in the GI marketplace.

    To be considered, you must apply and submit your application by Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018. If selected to participate, registration for the Tech Summit is required.

  • Innovator Package
    Meet one-on-one with up to four experts in the GI space to discuss your challenges, needs and next steps for taking your idea from concept to reality. Add the package (separate fee required) when you register for the Tech Summit. Limited to five slots, so register today.
