Funded by the Danish Industry Foundation, MedTech Bridge will guide Danish companies to the best possible market entries, and coach companies how to materialize their potential in the United States, tapping into Medical Alley’s unique community.

“I am overwhelmed with the power of the ecosystem here in Minnesota. The network that we can tap into via the Medical Alley Association and all of the local partners is astonishing,” said Lars Henrik Jensen, Program Director for MedTech Bridge. “I am convinced that within the next few years this program will drive successes for the partners, our members, the United States and Denmark.”
