The MedTech Booster Program is the acceleration program offered by the Sitem StartUp Club (SSC), focusing on early-stage MedTech startups, as well as those in related life science verticals such as biotech, digital health, and in-vitro diagnostics (IVD). Our program offers a comprehensive support package that includes consulting, networking, and financing opportunities for startups located in Bern. At SSC, we understand that each entrepreneur has unique needs, and that's why we offer a tailor-made approach to support. Whether it's providing guidance on regulatory requirements, connecting startups with industry experts and potential partners, or offering financial support to help bring ideas to fruition, we work closely with our startups to provide the resources they need to succeed.

"This seed round showed us the Sitem StartUp Club is not only a place where MedTech startups get office space, find a lively community and coaching, but also gave us access to an exclusive and active investor club,” explains Dominic Senn, CEO of machineMD. " For us such a comprehensive funding offer with a strong financing component is a key success factor that shows how well Bern is positioned in the field of translational medicine."
