The Emerging Growth Company Council (EGCC) is the division within AdvaMed dedicated to the needs of smaller medical technology manufacturers.
In recognition of the challenges facing small companies, the Emerging Growth Company Council was reorganized and expanded in December 2011 as the newest division of AdvaMed to bring greater focus to issues facing companies with annual U.S. sales of less than $100 million. It is the vision of the EGCC to be the leader in advancing medical technology by bolstering the industry’s emerging and early-growth enterprises – the drivers of disruptive innovation, job creation, and economic expansion.
Governed by the EGCC Board of Directors, this division is committed to ensuring the voice of small pioneering and entrepreneurial companies is always heard by policymakers. The EGCC focuses on facilitating a policy environment conducive to capital formation and innovation, advocating for domestic and international payment and regulatory policies that are favorable to emerging companies, and providing educational meetings and opportunities for emerging and early-growth company leaders and professionals.
As with AdvaMedDx, EGCC members enjoy full access to AdvaMed’s policy expertise and other resources – in all clinical areas. EGCC members also have the opportunity to participate in small-company focused programming to support their survival and growth.
