Medical Innovation Xchange(MIX) Welcomes Baylis Medical as the newest MIX Mentor Company.

Kitchener, ON, Canada, August 5, 2021-- Medical Innovation Xchange (MIX) is excited to welcome Baylis Medial as its newest Mentor Company. Baylis joins MIX as the second Mentor Company and will continue to be an incredible partner, collaborator and contributor to the local and domestic MedTech ecosystem.

“Baylis Medical is thrilled to support MIX with the important work of growing the MedTech landscape in Canada and the province of Ontario,” said Kris Shah, President of Baylis Medical. “Having navigated the Canadian MedTech space for over 30 years, we are proud to leverage this experience and expertise to mentor the next generation of local MedTech companies that will advance patient care around the world.”

MIX companies benefit from collaborating and supporting each other as they face unique challenges in scaling MedTech companies in Canada. The invaluable expertise that MIX Mentor Companies provides includes support for companies to overcome regulatory processes, commercialization and growth challenges, plus much more. Partnering with like-minded Canadian companies will help to foster more success across the ecosystem and will continue to support the growth of MIX companies. Baylis Medical has an incredible track record of success in building and maintaining a domestic MedTech company and its teams are very talented, experienced experts who can provide mentorship to smaller companies in ways that are not currently available.

Founded in 1986 by nurse Gloria Baylis, Baylis began as a local distribution company that quickly evolved to develop and manufacture its own clinical solutions in the areas of cardiology and spine. Today, it has grown into one of Canada’s largest medical device companies, with devices sold and distributed globally.

I am excited to officially welcome Baylis Medical to the MIX network of companies. As we work together to strengthen the domestic MedTech ecosystem, partnering with established industry leaders who have paved the way for so many is critical to the success of future scaling companies. Baylis, its team and leadership, demonstrate the values of MIX; a pay-it-forward culture, resilience, determination and a fierce advocacy of domestic MedTech innovators. MIX companies will see incredible benefit from the leadership and experience that Baylis has to offer.”  Elliot Fung, Executive Director, MIX

MIX was founded in 2019 and officially opened its doors in 2020 where it offers Canadian MedTech companies an environment to grow locally and go to market globally.
