There’s no better opportunity to connect with the industry’s best and brightest than at our networking events.
• Social events provide casual environments for connecting, networking and having collegial discussions on topics affecting virtually all medical device enterprises
• These forums are typically where career and entrepreneurial opportunities first arise
• Mentorship for young professionals seeking career support and development
• ‘Shout-Outs’ offer an opportunity at our social events to acknowledge those who embrace the spirit of paying-it-forward by sharing their insight and expertise with other members

Mastermind Programs

• Mastermind Panels are interactive forums that benefit each of our members and focus on critical topics which impact medical device executives and the companies that employ them
• Mastermind Focus Groups provide an opportunity for our sponsors to brainstorm with the smartest professionals in the industry

Collaboration

Collaboration among members is an outcome of our willingness to serve each other. Living this core value builds trust among our members and trust leads to collaboration.
Our members are creative professionals who can work with you ‘on your business,’ or ‘in your business’
Mentorship
Benjamin Franklin was an inventor and a visionary. Plus, he knew how to have fun. We like to quote Ben when we think of virtues of mentoring:

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
