In the month of August 2015, the Health Ministry of Mexico organized an exchange workshop in Israel so that top officials of all National Institutes of Health in Mexico could learn from the Israeli experience in medical device start-ups. The workshop was also organized with the help of CONACYT (Mexico’s council for research and technology) and several Israeli government institutions including Israel’s Ministry of Health, MATIMOP, BioJerusalem and some private companies in the medical device field in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. GSE Biomedical was the only private entity from Mexico invited to participate in this workshop. Israel is considered to be the “start-up nation”, and learning from their experience on medical device start-ups was certainly a mind opening experience.
