Securing successful market-entry for Nordic MedTech companies in the US market
MedTech Bridge carries Nordic medical device and digital health companies over barriers to entry in the US Healthcare and MedTech markets. The initiative is funded by Industriens Fond, the Danish Industry Foundation.
At MedTech Bridge, we are facilitators, collaborators and coordinators. We are a nonprofit community that puts small to medium-sized Nordic medical technology leaders together with seasoned experts who know their way around the complexity of the US healthcare system. For promising Nordic SMEs, we help turn uncertainty into confidence and hesitation into action.
Many Nordic medical device and digital health companies still have to realize their potential in the World’s largest MedTech market; the US. Analyses show that uncertainties about the regulatory pathway, reimbursement and a general understanding of the dynamics of the US healthcare system are among the biggest barriers to enter the US market.
Fast Track Connection to The MedTech Top Players in the US
MedTech Bridge is established in close collaboration between Nordic and US partners. The program became a reality in 2018, thanks to a grant from the Danish Industry Foundation.
With two hubs in Denmark and US, Medtech Bridge is perfectly positioned to enable a fast track connection to the #1 health tech cluster in the world, Medical Alley in Minnesota. Through dedicated programme managers in both hubs, who themselves have executive experience and a long track record from medtech companies, MedTech Bridge identifies and caters for the different needs of Nordic SME's.

With support from the Danish Industry Foundation, MedTech Bridge offers a comprehensive portfolio of programs and activities – all free of charge – designed to support your unique market entry or market revitalization efforts.
