Need to find a connection to an investor, consultant, supplier, strategic partner or other resource? If you're a Medical Alley Association member, you have access to your very own health technology bat signal.
Maybe not as exciting as Bruce Wayne's - but way more useful if you work in this industry.
Every year the staff at Medical Alley Association makes over 10,000 referrals. You need to find a consultant? Tell us what kind. Company hiring and you need a recruiter? We've got that. Startup looking to connect with local investors? We do it all the time.
We network with thousands of people each year to build relationships so that when you need something, we can help.
Here’s how it works:
- You make a request
- You go back to work
- We track down what you need
- We save you time and effort
Members helping members leads to more business. When you ask for a referral, we'll connect you to another member firm. This promotes business in Minnesota's Medical Alley, which strengthens the community. And if there is not a member that can help, we'll track down someone who can.
Recently, a Medical Alley Association member company, a startup diagnostics firm, was looking for investment. After discussing their stage of development, use of funds and getting background on their prior investor discussions we introduced them to a local angel fund. The fund did its diligence and subsequently participated in the company’s series A.
Another example of bat signal effectiveness, a larger member in the medical device space was reviewing its quality management processes and wanted to benchmark their work. Not knowing the other firms of their size or of similar products in town they reached out. We helped them identify other mid-sized electromedical device firms and introduced them to their counterparts in quality. With the companies connected, they collaborated to conduct a benchmarking study that benefitted all of them.
When you let us do the connecting, you’ve got more time to spend on bigger things, like inventing the next life-saving intervention for people who really need it. Have a referral request or want more information? Call or email any staff member and we'll help you out.
Or… throw up your Medical Alley bat signal.
