Three Australian start-up companies have just returned from a four-month stay at the Texas Medical Center (TMC) — the largest medical centre in the world. With an extensive campus of 21 hospitals, 50 non-profit organisations and eight academic and research institutions, TMC concentrates its operations and research on genomics, regenerative medicine, innovation, clinical trials and health policies.
TMC also runs the TMCx accelerator program, which provides start-ups with shared workspace, a curriculum tailored to the needs of healthcare entrepreneurs and the guidance of over 120 industry advisers. Companies also have access to the medical centre itself, all without membership fees or equity sharing.
CNSDose, WardMM and Personify Care participated in the first Australian intake into TMCx, from February–May 2017, as part of the Bio-Bridge initiative — a partnership between TMC and Australia’s medical technology sector. Facilitated by Austrade, Bio-Bridge aims to provide the foundations for a long-term bilateral innovation and technology transfer between Australia and the US.
