Success Story: BioEnterprise and AAMI Collaborate to Create the AAMI Xcelerator

When the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) selected Cleveland for its 2019 national conference AAMI Exchange, the organization’s leadership hoped to add a new twist to its programming. It envisioned a pre-conference startup pitch competition called AAMI Xcelerator at the Global Center for Health Innovation that would highlight new innovations in artificial intelligence, deep machine learning and connected devices in healthcare, specifically as they relate to improving clinical decision-making. To create this new pitch competition, AAMI turned engaged BioEnterprise, which served as a partner from start to finish. The BioEnterprise team worked closely with AAMI throughout the planning and execution of the AAMI Xcelerator, including promoting the competition, targeting and solicitation of qualified startups, event logistics, securing speakers and day-of execution.
