FierceMedTech opens nominations for the 2019 Fierce 15

FierceMedTech Fierce 15

Our 2018 picks for the FierceMedTech Fierce 15 showcased the innovative companies we believe can make strong, tangible impacts—not just by moving their individual needles past the limits of today’s medical technology, but by chasing breakthroughs that could move the field forward as a whole.

They included tech-powered upgrades of decades-old devices and techniques, where injuries, failures and mortality rates had stagnated. Some companies developed new methods to query the body itself, diving into its cells and proteins to provide more precise pictures of disease. Others zoomed outwards, using digital biomarkers and therapeutics to capture vast streams of data and sift them for ways toward better health, both mental and physical.

Now, we’re asking for your help in finding the next class of Fierce 15, so we can keep spotlighting the work of the most promising startups in the industry. Nominations are open for private companies from all over the world, and those at different levels of development.
