Q&A With LaunchPad Alumni, AtaCor Medical

Q: What was your experience like at MTIF?

A: Attending the MTIF 2018 conference was a fantastic experience.  The importance of connecting with other medical technology experts and investors, especially those from the Orange County community, cannot be overstated.  MTIF has become THE event to make those connections, and it delivered in spades.  I have a stack of business cards from new connections, all coming from meaningful face-to-face conversations, that can help AtaCor immediately.  Furthermore, having the corporate sponsors in the room makes it especially relevant as it allows startup companies, such as AtaCor, to jump onto their strategy radar for the future.”

Q: What did you get out of going through LaunchPad? 

A: The LaunchPad process proved to be a valuable experience that really helped me hone in on the strategy of messaging.  Ideas are only as good as your ability to described them to others.  LaunchPad helps entrepreneurs understand the mindset of the investor in order to deliver a more effective pitch.  The LaunchPad advisors are all extremely experienced in the field and really helped me to focus on the hit points of AtaCor story.  We were extremely blessed to be connected with the LaunchPad team and I highly encourage other entrepreneurs to join and work through the process.
