Respond to the request for information from the Innovation Seeker. To be considered for an introduction to the Seeker company, you must complete and email your application by the stated deadline. The earlier you submit, the more attention and time you'll receive from the reviewers, so don't delay!
MTBC will acknowledge your submittal, and it will be screened by the MTBC Innovation Team reviewers based on the criteria provided by the Seeker company.
If you are selected to meet with the Seeker company, you will pay a participation fee to the MTBC. There is no fee for applying. Costs are as follows:
- $100 individual fee who is selected but is not affiliated to a company
- $250 if you and your company is selected
Selected participants are then invited to attend an orientation by selected members of the MTBC Innovation Team who will provide information concerning the Innovation Seeker’s guidelines and tips in making a presentation.
Selected participants attend the TechQuest matching event held at the offices of the Seeker company. Selected participants will have approximately one hour for a face-to-face meeting with the Seeker company executives to discuss the innovation technology and a possible business relationship with the Seeker company.
Step 4 concludes the TechQuest process. At that point, if there is mutual interest between the Seeker company and the participant, then they typically will execute a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and plan subsequent meetings to discuss a specific contractual arrangement.
