Life Science Nation Launches First Coast Healthtech Week, Sept. 5-7, 2018

31 May

By Dennis Ford, Founder & CEO, Life Science Nation; Creator of RESI Conference Series & First Coast Healthtech Week

The inaugural First Coast Healthtech Week (FCHW) launches on September 5th at the Boston Marriott Copley Place with a new conference – the Healthcare Innovators Gathering, where incubators, accelerators, tech transfer, university translation initiatives, hospitals, research labs and their constituents from DC, MD, PA, NJ, NY, RI, CT and MA (the first coast) will gather for the first time in one location to get on the radar screens of potential global partners. The Healthcare Innovators Gathering is followed by the RESI Global Partnering Conference, September 6th, and the Entrepreneurs Academy Workshop Series, September 7th.

LSN’s established network of early stage global investors attend RESI Conference Series to source, engage and allocate funds to startup firms across the silos of biotech, medtech, diagnostics, and digital health. In addition, we present the First Coast Healthtech Week!

“The First Coast is blessed with an amazing amount of technological assets addressing unmet medical needs across the entire healthcare spectrum. They need to get in front of global investors,” says Dennis Ford, CEO at Life Science Nation. This includes over 100 incubators, accelerators, tech transfer, university translation initiatives, hospitals, and research labs each with aggregate portfolios of 1000 or more assets.

Chuck Stetson, CEO of Stetson Family Office, is a Title Sponsor of the Healthtech Innovators Investor Summit on September 5th, and the RESI Global Investor Conference on September 6th. Stetson is pioneering a new, nonprofit, evergreen, endowment model for early stage global companies within technology rich innovation hubs. “It is time to address the developmental ‘valley of death’ and muster state-of-the-art resources to bring breakthrough technologies to market faster,” Stetson stated.

LSN invites the technology hubs, and their scientist/entrepreneurs, of the First Coast to take advantage of this inaugural launch. LSN created an affordable registration price that will facilitate more startups attending the three-day event. “We had to get the price point right as the early stage folks have been priced out of most of the other conferences,” said Ford.

Qualifying First Coast day 1 registrants are the north east corridor incubators, accelerators, tech transfer, university translation initiatives, hospitals, research labs and their constituents as well as the investors and partners that seek them. Day 2 and 3 are open to all global attendees – scientist entrepreneurs, fundraising CEOs, investors, channel partners and service providers.
