Successful applicants will receive 12 months of mentorship for various stages of product development and commercialization to accelerate their business. Program mentorship is provided by Guy Plamondon, founding director of PRI.MED Medical Products Inc. Prior to becoming a founding partner, the former President and CEO of PRI.MED worked within the surgical and medical service industry with Johnson & Johnson and Baxter International.
