About Us

HyperTech is a pioneering student-run incubator aimed at medical and graduate students who are passionate about merging medicine with innovation. Our mission is to gather patient needs from the Roanoke community, form interdisciplinary teams to define the “patient need,” and craft impactful solutions, mirroring the dynamic of national start-up incubators. 

If you have a “patient need” you would like to submit, fill out this form.

This club is perfect for those who want to:

  • Learn more about innovation and translational research
  • Become a member of a design team and help assess a “patient need” in our community
  • Develop and showcase skills in opportunity assessment, project management and business planning in a real-world context.
