What We Do: ConnectSupportMentor

We provide Canadian scaling medtech companies with what they need; relevant and industry specific mentorship and advice, and the tools to succeed.

World-class mentoring from other successful medtech companies

Who best to provide invaluable advice but people and companies who have done it before? Our network supports each other with world-class advice, mentorship and help.

& Marketing Strategies

When medtech companies need to pivot to commercialization, MIX helps them to understand what has worked, what hasn’t, and enables them to develop the best strategy for their company.

Business Strategy

Strategic planning is a key component of moving from start-up to scale-up. MIX companies learn from each other and from experts in the medtech field who understand growth, priorities and overcoming barriers.

Regulatory & Quality Assurance Navigation & Support

One of the most common challenges facing Canadian medtech companies is navigating the complex regulatory and certification processes, and establishing effective Quality Assurance process. MIX companies benefit from understanding how to overcome these barriers.

Operations Support

Our turnkey facility, located in Kitchener Ontario provides MIX companies with shared meeting
rooms, state-of-the-art facilities, common areas such as a bistro, patio, event space, spirituality room and ample free parking. Private labs, light assembly and operations space are also available.

Fundraising & Financial Management Tactics

Canadian Medtech companies face financing challenges that are unique. Learn from our mentors and other MIX companies about successful tactics, and get exposure to like-minded experienced medtech investors.

Our Purpose: ConnectSupportMentor

Helping Canadian medtech companies suceed is our passion.

Frequently Asked Questions.

A MIX Residency is available for companies wishing to co-locate with like-minded companies and in-house experts. We recognize that Canadian medtech companies can grow and thrive across the entire country, so joining the MIX network enables companies outside of Waterloo Region to be part of the MIX community.

MIX is only available to medtech companies domiciled in Canada.

MIX residencies will vary from company to company, but are at least 18 months long. We expect many of our companies to stay with us until they outgrow the facility.

As part of the application process, our selection committee meets with each applicant and vets the viability and success criteria. MIX works exclusively with medtech companies in the scaling phases (generally TRL 5 and higher). If we feel that you are not quite ready to join MIX, then we can refer you to our great partners in the ecosystem who can best support you.

MIX Residents pay a fair market rate for rent, based on their square footage needs. MIX Network companies pay an annual fee of $1000.
