A healthy innovation sector in Manchester accelerates the MedTECH Centre Incubator to new heights.

04 March 2014

The MedTech Centre Incubator (MTCi) is thriving!

 
MTCi was built on the premise that the NHS needed to engage with innovators to incubate great ideas.  Innovators seem to be wholeheartedly buying into the concept, realising that this is the best place to grow a medtech company. This is great for the companies and the new jobs they create, but also good news for tomorrow's patients, who will benefit sooner from the technologies and treatments that are being developed here.
 

Rapid Growth

 
Since 28th of November, when the incubator was officially opened in Greenheys by Miles Ayling (Director of Innovation for NHS England), 10 companies have decided that this is the best place for their new business. New companies include:ATS, Biotexcel, Delta Diagnostics, Intelligent Development, Integro Health Solutions, Koolsite, Norgren, TYGA Health, Veraz Medico and Zyme Communications.
 
More details on these companies is available on the clients page of this website.
 

A Centre for Excellence

 
Dr. Paul Hanmer, who runs the MedTECH Centre Incubator on behalf of the JV partners said "I'm overwhelmed by the quality of innovation which is coming to Manchester and excited by the future potential to help the NHS."
 
MTCi now has 46 occupied workstations between 28 customers, taking the incubator to 66% occupancy.
 
"There is an energy in a growng cluster of like-minded entrepeneurial ventures" added Dr. Hanmer. "Each company is on a journey, and can learn from and support other companies in the incubator. There is a tangible sense of purpose."
