"This is a robust database of startups identified often very early in their life (sometimes just days or weeks old) and detailed with more information than is available anywhere (these are frequently stealth companies). Should we follow up on these through the life of the company and detail all their address changes as they get older and more well (and widely) known? Perhaps, but others can do that better (or at least try to), while I would pit this database against ANY for identifying real startups." - Patrick Driscoll, Head Startup Hunter.
offers an online, searchable database of
company startups. Updated regularly with addition of at least 10

database contains approximately 1,000

other medical product companies.
The Medtech Startup

About the Database
MedMarket Diligence Startups Database is compiled from multiple published and
unpublished sources, including those in the public domain as well as sources
that are proprietary to MedMarket Diligence.
MedMarket Diligence began tracking the formation of startup medical product
companies in 2001, reporting on them within the regular “Startups” feature in
the company’s previously published MedMarkets publication. The companies included in Startups are
those identified as medical product companies that had been founded typically no
more than a year prior to the date research was being conducted.
technology scope of companies covered is focused on medical device and related
technologies, with “related” technologies to include biomaterials,
biopharmaceuticals and others that are either being integrated with medical
devices or competing with them directly. There is no strict limit to the
clinical applications included. A company’s inclusion in the database is
strictly based on the subjective decision of MedMarket Diligence and the
availability of relevant state corporate filing or other appropriate records
regarding the date of formation of the company. In instances in which companies
state a specific filing date that differs from the corporate filing record for
that company, the priority is given to the corporate filing record as an
formation of medical product startups, there are varying degrees to which
companies actively engage in the process to either make themselves known or
aggressively keep their technology and company details under wraps. The minimum
necessary data on companies for them to be included in the database are:
- Strong evidence that a company has been formed, such as:
- Corporate filing
with the relevant state office
(press release or other) by the company or by investment principals that
a company has been founded and specific city/state location given.
- Company involvement in medical technology development, as indicated by:
- Company website or
investment portfolio company, product or description
- Investment by an
entity that is by history or professed focus dedicated to medical
technology (device, drug, biotech, Pharma) investments.
- Identifiable company details including at least either the company name or
investment group and a year founded.
- The judgment of MedMarket Diligence on whether to include the company based
on clinical/technology scope.
- Generally based on
whether it is a device company or has a clinical application competitive
with device companies.
- We simply find the
technology compelling or full of significant potential in medical
Note: Inclusion or exclusion of a company in the database in no way constitutes
an endorsement (or lack thereof) by MedMarket Diligence as to the company’s
likely commercial success.
Q: What are the sources for your information?
A: While we would love to provide you with all of our
carefully cultivated information sources and methods so that you could do this
yourself, we prefer that you focus on your business and let us help you by doing
the footwork to find the startups. Suffice it to say, we pursue a wide range of
public and private sources of information, often piecing together limited bits
of information to reveal a company’s founding. Our sources change regularly and
we are continually pursuing new sources and methods to identify new medtech
Q: How often are new companies added to the database?
A: Every month, we add anywhere between five and ten newly
identified startups. Most often, each startup added will fit a definition of
having been founded within the past year, but we may add startups 1-2 years old
if we find that they have been operating in stealth mode, have recently become
known to us and are particularly interesting for the clinical application and/or
Q: If this is a “Startups” database, why are there
companies over five years old?
A: The database includes companies founded 2001 or later
that were identified as being less than a year old at the time of our research,
at which point such companies arguably were startups. We include them now
because we feel their technologies, which may still be under development or in
any case have not yet penetrated the market, are still very much of interest to
Q: Why do some companies have limited details?
A: Some companies just don’t want particular details known
so that they can ensure the proprietary nature of their development and/or
ensure that they maximize the value of their product/technology to be
“harvested” once they do make themselves known. While we respect their interest
to be in stealth mode, we are in the business of assisting our customers
identify such valuable companies and will therefore pursue every legitimate
means possible to reveal details on these companies.
Q: The company (or other source) says it was founded in a
different year than is indicated in the database.
A: We typically report a company’s founding date (year) as
the earlier of either the year the company reports or the year on record with
the corporate filing (company’s corporate registration with a state registrar).
If there is a discrepancy, it is often (though not always) that the company is
reporting a later founding year than is on record, which artificially indicates
a shorter development timeframe. We prefer to consistently report the earliest
date we can find of the company’s actual formation.
