Meet The RESI San Francisco Innovation Challenge Finalists

21 Dec

By Chris Cummings, Senior Marketing Manager, LSN

Happy Holidays! With just under 3 weeks until the 4th annual RESI San Francisco, LSN is proud to announce this year’s crop of innovative new life science companies participating in the RESI Innovation Challenge.

The RESI Innovation Challenge covers startups in therapeutics, medtech, diagnostics and healthcare IT companies from around the globe. All applicants are vetted based on not only the quality of the company’s scientific work, but also the strength of the management team and how well-positioned the company is to receive investment.

Previous Innovation Challenge participants have proven to be successful entrepreneurs; we have seen as many as 50% of companies in a Challenge receive funding within one year of the conference. Top competitors are able to find a balance between utilizing both the structure of RESI’s partnering system, and the ad-hoc nature of the Innovation Challenge.

On January 9th, RESI SF’s estimated 1000 attendees will receive “RESI Cash” to allocate to the entrepreneurs whose technologies they expect will be most influential. The capital invested will be tallied up 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.
