Medopad and invendo medical have been named as winners of the Tech Tour 2018 Healthtech Summit Awards. The awards highlight the successful development of European companies that have made significant achievements and contributions to global health, and who have presented at past Healthtech or Medtech Summits.


invendo medical, winner of our Tech Tour 2018 Medtech Award is a leading developer of sterile single-use high definition endoscopy products in the field of gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery. In 2017, invendo medical joined forces with Ambu – who are the global leader in single-use visualisation – to develop, manufacture and market single-use HD scopes for GI endoscopy.


Timo Hercegfi, CEO of invendo medical commented “It’s really a huge honour to receive this award as appreciation for the hard work that eventually led to our sale to Ambu last year. invendo did not have a clean story to offer. We’ve gone through ups and downs during our history and have encountered many “near-death” experiences. But in the end it was persistence and determination that paid off. We’ve been around far longer than many other startups and I’m also grateful that we have seen so much support from our VC backers who have learnt a very valuable lesson that showing patience pays off. Great people can make it happen – and we have a lot of them.”


Medopad, winner of our Tech Tour 2018 Digital Health Award recognises the vast potential of technology for change and developed a mobile application to connect patients to healthcare providers and doctors providing them with a highly personalised, efficient care experience.


Dan Vahdat, Co-Founder & CEO of Medopad commented “We are delighted to be chosen as the winner of the Tech Tour 2018 Digital Health Award but we remain humble and continue to channel all our efforts in making our vision a reality – to create a world where people can live longer, a world where people can continue to do their greatest work and a world where people can continue to love their loved ones.”


Past award winners include CeQur, EOS Imaging, Endosense, mindmaze, Occlutech, Sapiens, and Sophia Genetics.
