10x London is back!

Thank you, Medical Device Community, for your invitation to host a 10x Medical Device Conference in London! We're returning for the first-time since the pandemic and it will be great to see you again.

You want to know what 10x is all about and whether it's right for you. Here's the backstory that brings you up to date for this, our twelfth event.

Doors open at 7:30 on 15 September 2022. "Last call" will be 8 p.m. and your £495 registration includes full-day catering (a lite breakfast, fork buffet lunch, coffee breaks, food, drinks – and our famous ice cream social!).

If you can't spend a whole day with us, please attend the evening events starting at 5 o'clock: A thought-provoking keynote presentation, immediately followed by a 'two-hour cocktail and hors d'oeuvres' reception. (Just £90 for the three-hour-long evening package.)


We were lucky and squeezed this in Feb 2020 - just before the COVID shutdown.

Are you a First Timer?

If you haven’t attended a 10x Medical Device event yet, make 2022 the year you do. Wear jeans, indulge in our famous ice cream social, relax with movie clips between medical device networking sessions, and enjoy music videos in the background during the breaks.

In short, come!

Schedule for 15 September

Fast Round #1: Meet 4 Companies That Can Help You Right Away

Click here to apply for one of the eight Fast Round spots.
This is how a ‘Fast Round’ works:

  • It’ll be just you and Joe onstage, both sitting on bar stools.
  • Joe will ask questions, the kind he’d ask if he walked up to your trade show booth.
  • Joe won’t prepare in advance. In fact, the less he knows, the better.
  • Joe will start with this question: “So who are you, and what do you do?”
  • Questions will flow naturally from there.
  • Joe may also ask (so be prepared): “Teach us something about your work (but not in any way self-promotional) that you believe the average guest in our audience may not know.”
  • If you choose to bring something onstage, it will be small enough for you to carry on and off the stage.
  • You’ll need to fill out a simple one-page template. During our three minutes, we’ll project it onscreen to aid visual learners. It will also appear in show photographs (and can subsequently be used for your social media efforts).
  • It will be recorded and professionally edited for your later use, however you see fit.

It’ll be fun, casual, and a real crowd-pleaser. Starring you!

Here’s an sample Fast Round, featuring our mate Stephen Carter. Should we feature you too?
(A modest additional charge assessed to cover production costs.)

Interactive Session: Using the "Google" for Regulatory Data

If you’re in medical devices, you likely need Real World Evidence, patient data, and clinical trials.

The value of this work comes from the ability to interpret data in its many forms. Nyquist Data helps by curating regulatory approval data previously hidden in document. Come with data points you need to pull for something you’re working on.

Presenter Helena Ting (and Nyquist Founder Michelle Wu, remotely) will demonstrate how easy to pull – and how detailed and copy-and-paste-ready presentable – the data you need from any FDA, EU, Chinese, Japanese, or clinical trials database.

It’s an amazing tool. That’s why I had to have them present, and why I accepted their sponsorship.

Come prepared!

Interactive Session: What Do You Need?

Among the most popular MDG Premium features is #what-do-you-need, where members lean on the community for business-furthering connections, introductions, and answers.

In this interactive session, I’ll pass the microphone around so each of us can tell the room where you’re stuck, what help you need, which introductions will help you grow your business faster, better, and less expensively than you can on your own.

It works famously virtually. It may be even more successful here, in person, for the first time at a 10x Medical Device Conference.

Assess your business. Isolate your greatest challenge or need. Then share with the audience.

It’s the very spirit of this event.

Lunch

We have a lovely fork buffet planned. I get to choose five items (not sure which yet).

So if you have a preference or dietary restrictions, now’s the time to let me know!

The Seven Deadly Software-as-Medical-Device Challenges

Jeff McBride joins Diarmuid for questions and answers after a short presentation. They explain,

“For a medical device to be successful it needs to fulfil three essential criteria. It must fill an unmet medical need, it must demonstrate clinical utility, and it must have the support and endorsement of key opinion leaders. Software, is no different.

Doctors and clinicians are essentially in the business of data acquisition. “”How long have you felt this way?”” “”Where does it hurt?”” “”Have you changed your lifestyle recently?”” Is there a family history of this condition?”” Not all medical devices contain software, and not all health-related software is a medical device.

Understanding the classification of your software product or idea is critical towards determining the success or failure of your start-up company. Development of Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) presents a number of challenges to budding medical technology entrepreneurs. These include a wide range of hurdles to overcome including, finance, investment, technology, hardware, procurement, regulatory, legal etc. etc. The SaMD entrepreneur needs to be a master of all of these, or so it would appear.

SaMD entrepreneurs will get insights into best practices for developing products and meeting the challenges they face. Potential investors can gain insight into the mindset of the SaMD world. Potential suppliers and vendors can discover the most suitable ways of interacting with SaMD companies. Most importantly, by applying a patient-outcome approach towards the successful deployment of novel medical technologies, everyone will empathise and understand the needs and benefits of a successful product journey from concept to market.”
