StreaMD Wins Innovation Award
On May 11-13, 2017, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the Orthopedic Research Society (ORS) held their inaugural Innovation and Entrepreneurship Symposium in Rosemont, titled Translating Orthopaedic Technologies into Clinical Practice: Pathways from Novel Idea to Improvements in Standard of Care.
The focus of the event was to examine pathways to commercialization that can be used by surgeons and scientists who work with companies, entrepreneurs, and funding sources in the field of orthopaedics. StreaMD was selected as 1 of 5 finalist startups to 'pitch' at this conference in front of a 'shark tank' of panelists.
Well, we won first place! And were subsequently crowned as the 2017 AAOS/ORS Orthopaedic Innovator Award Winner! We want to thank Suzanne Maher, PhD, Michael Yaszemski, MD, PhD, and Erin Lynn Ransford for putting together a great event. Following the symposium, the AAOS Now published an Innovation Spotlight on StreaMD.
