We can’t believe the RESI NYC Conference is only a month away! With this being our second year at NYC, the LSN team is truly excited about all of the innovation that we are gathering for the conference. We are particularly impressed by the global pool of applicants for the upcoming RESI NYC Innovation Challenge, with many startups from South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia applying to be part of the Top 30 to showcase their technologies.

We have decided to extend the deadline to Monday, October 8th, to provide more time for startups who were interested in applying for this Innovation Challenge, but may not have had enough time to complete their applications. We are accepting submissions through our online application portal, and companies are also welcome to submit their application and supplementary materials to RESI@lifesciencenation.com.

Companies are selected based on multiple criteria, including the quality of the company’s scientific work, the strength of the management team and how well-positioned the company is to receive investment. We are impressed with the quality of the companies who we invite as Innovation Challenge finalists – we have seen as many as 50% of companies in an Innovation Challenge receive funding within one year of the conference.

Recently, we interviewed the first-place winner of our last Innovation Challenge at RESI Boston and you can read about his experience here. We also encourage interested applicants to read our recent article on how to be successful in the Innovation Challenge.

We hope you find these resources helpful, and we look forward to receiving your applications!
