Dennis bookBOSTON – April 9, 2015 – Johnson and Johnson Innovation, JLABS (JLABS) is collaborating with Life Science Nation’s RESI @ TMCx, June 8th, Houston conference.  JLABS is a co-sponsor and will be hosting a Sunday evening cocktail reception on June 7th to kick off the RESI @ TMCx event on the 8th.

“The JLABS event will provide a great venue for scientist-entrepreneurs and investors to get some additional networking time,” said Dennis Ford, CEO, Life Science Nation.

Senior representatives from JLABS also will be participating in RESI’s panels and workshops as well as the RESI investor partnering forum.

“JLABS has a close relationship with the Texas Medical Center (TMC) and will be opening an incubator at the TMC Innovation Insitute, called JLABS @TMC, in early 2016. JLABS @TMC is dedicated to the early stage life science arena, so collaborating with Life Science Nation and TMCx for this event makes a lot of sense,” said Chelsea Hewitt, Director of Marketing for JLABS.

The Redefining Early Stage Investments conference also takes place in Boston in September and in San Francisco in January.  Now with RESI @ TMCx on June 8th, fundraising CEOs have a venue to meet early stage investors that are a fit for their sector and stage every 4 months, providing a great ROI for cost conscious CEO’s.
