RESI@JPM: Spotlight Your Firm at the RESI Innovation Challenge

5 Nov

By Lucy Parkinson, Senior Research Manager, LSN

How will you make the most of your time in San Francisco in January? If you read our previous article, you’ll know that a record number of investors will attend RESI on January 12th. The RESI Innovation Challenge provides entrepreneurs with a way to engage with this huge audience of active life science investors throughout the event.

The RESI Innovation Challenge showcases selected entrepreneurs in an exhibition-style format throughout the full-day conference. From the pool of applicants, LSN’s internal scientific review board will choose the top 30 companies to present their technologies. Presenters will gain exposure to investors and potential partners by showcasing their companies and products in a poster board format in the RESI Exhibition Hall. Unlike traditional 5- to 15-minute pitch presentations, which don’t provide any real one-on-one interaction or actionable feedback from investors, the RESI Innovation Challenge enables executives to share their pitch directly with attendees, which can generate more in-depth and frequent conversations with potential investors throughout the event.

To add some friendly competition to the mix, LSN invites all attendees to participate in the RESI Innovation Challenge as virtual investors. At the start of the day, each attendee will receive “RESI Cash” to allocate to the entrepreneurs whose technologies they expect will be most successful. The capital invested will be tallied up at the end of the day, and the top three winners will receive prizes and be featured in our RESI newsletter recap that will go out to LSN’s 20,000 newsletter readership.
