Investment in Innovation (IN3) Medical Device 360 Boston Panel Features How Acquirers Pick Their Companies

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- 'Investment in Innovation (IN3) Medical Device 360 degrees Boston', the medtech industry's leading partnering event being held at Hyatt Regency, will be hosting an exciting keynote panel featuring large medical device companies and their criteria for buying.

Several leading large device companies will speak on the topic of "What Acquirers Want to See in a Start-Up Before Buying." Issues covered include:

  • What is your current philosophy/approach to acquisitions in terms of technology development vs. internally-driven R&D?
  • What role does M&A play? What do you believe is the success rate of device M&A deals?
  • Where do large corporations see the greatest opportunity for growth?
  • What questions should start-ups have already answered before approaching a potential buyer?
  • Are there enough venture-backed small companies in the pipeline so that you're satisfied that you're seeing a robust flow of opportunities

Panelists are from Baxter, Philips, Medtronic, and Johnson & Johnson.

IN3 Medical Device 360 degrees Boston will also feature presentations by 30+ early-, mid- and late-stage start-up companies seeking funding and/or strategic partnership across the spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic device markets. For a snapshot of companies, please see here.
