First Coast Innovators Gathering – A New Component of the RESI Boston September Conference

26 Jul

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

Life Science Nation will host the RESI Global Partnering Conference on September 6th at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Part of this new aspect of RESI is the First Coast Innovator’s Gathering, which will include incubators, accelerators, tech transfer offices, university translation initiatives, hospitals, research labs and their constituents from DC, MD, VA, PA, NJ, NY, RI, CT and MA. These geographic tech hubs will gather for the first time in one location to get on the radar screens of potential global partners.

This new initiative is the result of our global investor network asking LSN if we could source even earlier stage technology companies than typically attend LSN’s RESI conferences. The scientist-entrepreneurs and fundraising CEOs who come to RESI are typically looking for series A and B, 2-10mm in capital. What our investors are asking for is the addition of the earliest stage startups seeking grants, seed, and angel capital. This is why LSN created the First Coast Innovators Gathering, to be introduced as a new part of the RESI Boston event. This will add a new and exciting dimension to our RESI conference, making it relevant to companies from seed to series B and beyond.

The Stetson Family office, a Title Sponsor of RESI and a supporter of the Innovator’s Gathering, is pioneering new global funding initiatives and platforms to help the early stage players move faster through the development cycle. Stetson will also be hosting a lunch to talk about these programs to the attending First Coast Tech Hub executives and their teams.

The good news is that we have had over 200 investors (with another 200 expected, interested in the earliest stage and beyond) already signed up and now we are recruiting the early-stage players, from seed to series B, to come meet global partners and form some new strategic relationships. RESI also has speaker slots open and tables available for showcasing your firm to the national and international players that will be attending. Contact us now if you would like to participate in RESI.
