Building on Memphis’ regional assets and leveraging the area’s industry expertise, Bioworks is leading business accelerators in the biomedical/medical device and bioagriculture sectors.
ZeroTo510 Medical Device Accelerator is a first-of-its-kind medical device accelerator created to help medical device entrepreneurs navigate the start-up process, refine their business models and achieve the Food and Drug Administration’s 510(k) pre-market notification filing.
The majority of medical devices get cleared for commercial deployment through the FDA’s 510(k) clearance process, which is the fastest and most economical route to market for a new medical device. ZeroTo510 enables entrepreneurs with ideas for innovative medical devices to work with Medical Device experts to bring their products to market while building a business model that works. Hosted in Memphis, Tennessee, the program leverages key ecosystem strengths in biomedical research and medical device manufacturing to create a unique program.
ZeroTo510 has been awarded a Silver ranking by the Seed Accelerator Rankings Project for four consecutive years. The ranking identifies ZeroTo510 as one of the Top 25 Accelerators in the country.
During the spring and summer of 2019 ZeroTo510 is hosting its eighth. During the first seven years 27 companies have been through the accelerator. More than $15 million in seed and follow-on investments have been attracted.
