MTAA Ignite Program – supporting the next generation in MedTech

Ensuring that talented individuals consider a role within the MedTech Industry

The MTAA Ignite Program is a WiMT initiative to ‘fire up’ medical device companies to sponsor a student to attend an MTAA event, where they can connect with the MedTech industry network and be inspired and supported in their personal development. Sponsorship of a student is a practical and tangible way that leaders in MedTech can provide support and encouragement to future leaders entering a career within the MedTech industry.

Sponsorship cost is the equivalent of one seat at an MTAA event at the member rate.

Sponsors will be recognised at the event.
