BOSTON – February 19, 2015 – Life Science Nation (LSN) and Texas Medical Center (TMC) have partnered to bring the Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) Conference to Houston on June 8, 2015. The conference will take place at TMCx, the TMC’s 100,000+-square-foot, state-of-the-art accelerator space.
RESI @ TMCx will bring together fundraising CEOs and early stage investors from around the globe, providing the opportunity for dialogue and relationship building, with the goal of eventual capital allocations.
“TMC has long been known for world-class life science research and technology,” said Dr. Robert Robbins, President and CEO of TMC. “RESI @ TMCx will bring early stage global-investment capital to our accelerator space, which will hopefully streamline the commercialization of our technology assets.”
The RESI conference focuses on 10 categories of early stage investors. Through an expansive series of panels and workshops, investors explain their current investment mandates and process for identifying and qualifying candidates. The RESI Partnering Forum employs a Match.com-like sourcing platform that fundraising CEOs use to identify life science investors who fit their technology sector and stage of development.
RESI @ TMCx will feature angel syndicates, family offices and private wealth firms, corporate venture capitalists, venture philanthropy groups, foundations and endowments, big pharma and virtual pharma companies, mid-level private equity firms, government organizations, and venture capital investors.
“RESI is a very efficient venue for investors and innovators to find each other,” said Dennis Ford, CEO of Life Science Nation, the creator of the RESI conference series. “Our vision for the series is to provide, a venue for early stage investors and innovators to connect.”
RESI Boston takes place in September, followed by RESI San Francisco, which is held in concert with the JPMorgan Healthcare Conference in January. RESI @ TMCx will become the third conference in the series.
