Navi proudly announces that it has been selected as one of six start-up companies to be accepted into the inaugural cohort of The Actuator Accelerator Program - Australia's largest medical device focused accelerator program.

The Actuator is engaged in close partnership with the Australian Government, Artesian, MTP Connect, and a range of industry partners (including Medtonic and Johnson & Johnson). The program will be providing Navi with initial seed funding along with an advanced mentorship program designed to accelerate the commercialisation pathway.

The 15-month program consists of a structured 12-month mentor-led development phase, followed by an intensive 3 month ‘investor road show’. “We are incredibly excited to be launching The Actuator—Australia’s National MedTech Accelerator,” says Dr Buzz Palmer, CEO of The Actuator. “Our mission is to support our homegrown talent within their local innovation ecosystems in order to build incredible successes. We are eager to witness how game-changing ideas will emerge and develop right out of Australia.”

One of the primary purposes of the Actuator program is to get start-up companies ‘investment-ready’ and assist with easier access to funding through partners such as venture capital partners Artesian. Navi CEO Alex Newton states he is excited about the opportunities that the Actuator program offers: "Our partnership with the Actuator and Artesian means will accelerate our product development activities and enhance success for our future capital raising rounds."
