Plug and Play Selects EdgeX in Inaugural Batch of Startups for their Warsaw Medtech Program

EdgeX announced today that it has been selected by Plug and Play, the world’s largest innovation platform, into its Warsaw Medtech program in Spring 2024.

The program, which will start in April, is set to culminate with a graduation and startup pitch presentations at Expo, taking place in Warsaw, Indiana. Over the course of a 12-week program, EdgeX will benefit from strategic guidance from founding Medtech corporate partners Zimmer Biomet and Paragon Medical as well as mentorship, workshops, networking, events, and more.

“We are honored to be chosen for Batch 1 of the Warsaw Medtech program,” said Tim Gibbons, CEO of EdgeX. “We’re ready to revolutionize the surgical implant manufacturing landscape by offering a cutting-edge solution that provides a dramatic leap forward in efficiency for healthcare logistics.”

EdgeX offers the only Real-Time Location System (RTLS) network that requires no capital expense. All data is uploaded in a secure fashion through a private, wire-free cellular backhaul with minimal hospital resources required.  With simple peel-and-stick tracking tags and nodes, the network can be easily installed within hours with no cabling or wiring needed.

“We are thrilled to welcome EdgeX to Warsaw as we foster innovation in Medtech here in Indiana,” said Brandon Noll, Director of Plug and Play Indiana.

Plug and Play operates a network of innovation hubs and accelerator programs in various technology verticals, recently announcing this new Indiana location, focused on the region’s robust Medtech industry. It provides startups with access to mentorship, resources, funding opportunities, corporate partnerships, and networking events to help them grow and scale their businesses.
