Breakdown of Investors You Can Meet at RESI Boston

13 Aug

By Michael Quigley, Director of Research, LSN

mike-2The RESI Conference was built on helping fundraising entrepreneurs connect with a diverse set of early stage healthcare investors, and with 200 anticipated investors, our next RESI in Boston this September 16th is no exception. Figure 1 below breaks down the types of investors that are currently attending the conference.

While Venture Capital does represent the single largest group in attendance, the remaining 77% of investor groups belong to Family Offices, Large Pharma/Medtech, Corporate Venture Capital, Venture Philanthropy, Angel, and Private Equity Investors. As many venture capital firms have moved to later stage, more risk averse investments or have adopted a company building strategy, many of the entrepreneurs we work and interact with are getting more traction with investors outside of the traditional venture capital investor class. There are still many venture capitalists who are active in the space; however, in today’s competitive fundraising environment it is highly beneficial to target all relevant investor types, and RESI allows entrepreneurs to do just that.

Due to the work done by LSN’s dedicated investor research team, we also have visibility into the types of companies that these investors will be looking for at the event. (As many investors are interested in multiple sectors, the percentages are over 100%.)

As can be seen above, RESI will provide an opportunity for companies across the early stage healthcare spectrum to meet with relevant investors. It is this diversity of investors attending paired with the forward-looking investor mandate information used in our partnering platform that really makes RESI stand out in terms of being able to book meaningful meetings. With partnering going live on Monday, the best time to register for the event is now before any investor meetings get booked.
