Call for Innovation: RESI Conference Presentation Applications Now Open, San Francisco, January 13, 2015

By Tom Crosby, RESI Conference Manager, LSN

Tom 2As LSN prepares to bring the next Redefining Early Stage Investments Conference to San Francisco, we are proud to announce that emerging biotech and medical device companies are now invited to apply to showcase their technologies at the event. Over the course of the next two months, thirty innovative companies will be selected from the pool of applications for a highly sought-after presentation space during the week of the 33rd annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference.

For its last two Boston events, RESI has employed a re-envisioned presentation model, called the RESI Innovation Challenge; rather than have CEOs pitch during a randomly allocated 10-15 minute time slot, RESI gives presenting executives a space in the exhibition hall for the full day of the conference. Typically, selected companies will use this space to present their executive summary or recent trial data on large poster boards spread throughout the hall. LSN has found that this model increases the number and frequency of investor interactions for presenting companies throughout the course of the day.

To add some friendly competition to the atmosphere of the conference, the RESI Innovation Challenge also invites all attendees to participate in a virtual investment contest between the 30 companies. At the start of the day, each attendee receives RESI Cash to allocate to the entrepreneurs whose technologies they find most influential. When all is said and done, the company receiving the most investor dollars is named the winner. In March, it was the Newton, MA-based Empiriko; September’s event crowned Boston’s ORIG3N. Who will take the top prize at RESI San Francisco? Apply to present now — it could be you!
