Angel investors are some of the earliest and most important allies for entrepreneurs. They supply early stage companies with the much needed capital along with their sector expertise, business acumen, and professional network.

We have seen a growing trend of angels syndicating and participating in larger deals. Angel investment round sizes increased sharply in 2014. The healthcare sector showed the largest growth, where the median angel round reached $2 million, up from $1.57 million in 2013. However each angel group comes with unique membership composition, professional knowledge, and investment focus. It is an often daunting task for a scientist entrepreneur to identify and build relationship with the right angel who will move their new ideas forward.

LSN have gathered the most prominent angel groups in life sciences for two panel sessions to be held simultaneously at RESI Boston: Biotech Angels and Medtech Angels.

The Biotech Angels Panel will be focused on current trends in angel investment in the biopharmaceutical field. The panel will be moderated by Pravin Chaturvedi from TIE Angels, and will hear from:

The Medtech Angels Panel will discuss trends in angel investment in medical technologies including devices, diagnostics, and smart devices. The panel will be moderated by Steve Goodman, Co-Founder at Mid Atlantic Bio Angels, and will hear from:

These sessions will help scientist entrepreneurs to better understand the perspective of an angel. What types of deals are most attractive to each angel? Who is the right group for my technology and how to initiate a dialogue with them? What to expect in the due diligence process? For early stage entrepreneurs considering angel capital, this is an excellent opportunity to meet them face-to-face.
