This strategic partnership not only amplifies SSC’s support structure for emerging medtech ventures but also aligns with CSEM’s vision of fostering an ecosystem where technology meets societal needs. This collaboration is a testament to their shared commitment to fostering growth, mentorship, and success within the medtech community that will leave an indelible mark on the industry and society at large. ggba
