Exploring The Ecosystem: How Medical Alley Connects

Tags: , , , ,

THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO BE A HEALTHCARE INNOVATOR THAN MEDICAL ALLEY.

The region is designated as the #1 health technology cluster in the world due to its concentration of leading healthcare inventors, playing home to world-class health technology leaders (Medtronic, Boston Scientific, and 3M to name a few) and a supporting infrastructure that moves life-changing innovations from bench to bedside in record time. Despite these defining characteristics, the region has been unfairly maligned for its perceived lack of access to capital and as a result, lack of financial opportunity for Minnesota’s startup community.

These perceptions are, in large part, why the Medical Alley Association has continued to report on record-breaking fund raises within our community. Therefore, to bridge the gap between perception and reality, we constructed an interactive investment and M&A tool to show just how many opportunities really exist for innovators here in Medical Alley.
