3) Expert Talk: 10 Steps to a MedTech Pitch Deck by Mr. Ee Bin Liew

Healthcare and MedTech is one of the hottest industries to be in worldwide. Especially with the global pandemic, there have been many new entrants, start-ups, SMEs, and large corporations focusing on this area.

For companies that are fund-raising and seeking investment, there are very specific aspects to address, communicate and impress upon the investment/funding group to instill confidence in placing their trust in the companies. We distill this into 10 steps in creating that compelling pitch for the MedTech industry.
