By Gregory Mannix, Vice President International Business Development, LSN

The deadline to enter the RESI Innovation Challenge for the RESI Philadelphia event (June 3rd) is fast approaching, coming up May 1st. I would encourage every fundraising CEO and scientist/entrepreneur who will be in Philadelphia in early June to go for it! The RESI Innovation Challenge is a great way to instantly get your company from regional mode to global mode as RESI Philly is going to be loaded with international biotech, medtech and digital health partners and investors. A great strategy is to apply for the Innovation Challenge and if you are one of the 35 early stage startups selected, you can use that prestigious selection to help garner more partnering meetings. We are expecting over 300 investors in attendance at RESI, and the ratio of investors to startups is typically 1 to 1. These global investors and partners come to RESI seeking innovative technologies with high potential to scale in global markets. The RESI partnering system is designed to ensure that meetings between investors and startups are based on a strong fit for each other’s criteria, and we have often heard that makes RESI a much more productive place to meet than other events.

We encourage all applicants to read our article on How To Be Successful in the RESI Innovation Challenge. There is not much time left to apply – interested applicants, please complete your online application through our application portal here or submit your PDF application and supplementary materials by sending them to We look forward to receiving your submissions!  Here is a list of the companies that placed in the top three at the last 4 RESI events.  Take a look at the companies who have won in the past – they represent a very compelling and diversified group of technologies.
