Hiring and Compensating the CEO

The 24th Annual Medical Device Conference will focus on understanding the challenges facing the Medtech start-up today, and the strategies that are emerging to respond to these challenges. In a series of topical panels presented over the course of one day, you will hear from industry CEOs, venture capitalists, industry strategists, investment bankers, and market analysts.
