MPP West: A Gathering of Global Experts in Medtech

MPP WEST Medical Processing Panel held their first annual event last week, and what an event it was!

It’s rare to gather so much great talent in one location, and this event hit it out of the park.  The kickoff with Keynote speaker Stanton Rowe, of NXT Biomedical set the stage for the level of learning that took place.   He serves as CEO for this NXT Biomedical, which is a medtech incubator for driving great ideas into medical devices.  We were led through the process and development of great ideas and how the work of inventors and innovators saves lives.  Enjoy Stanton’s TedTalk on “The Big Picture in Innovation”.
