LSN – Bringing RESI to Asia

15 Aug

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

With RESI coming to Asia for the first time in November, with events taking place in Shanghai (November 12th) and Taipei (November 14th), it’s a good time to take a top-level look at why RESI’s model is such a good fit for the life science ecosystem, and why we chose to bring the event to a new marketplace in Asia.

Early stage product development in the Life Sciences industry is usually outsourced. This has created a virtual global ecosystem comprised of scientist/entrepreneurs, early stage investors and channel partners as well as the service providers that help with the execution of product plans, product development and testing.  This virtual model is unique to the life science arena because of the prohibitive costs of infrastructure and staff for these highly specialized scientific services. The life science outsourced service arena has evolved into a dynamic, global, trillion-dollar industry.

LSN’s RESI Partnering Conference Series brings together companies seeking funding from global investors and regional distribution channel partners.  By forming two-way partnerships with technology hubs all around the world, LSN has unlocked the market potential of previously disconnected players in the life science ecosystem.

The key strengths of the RESI Conference events are:

  • RESI is a real investor conference that delivers highly qualified global early stage life science investors with vetted investment mandates to a bevy of early stage CEOs seeking capital for the latest drugs, devices, diagnostics and health IT products that they are inventing.
  • The RESI Conference series has created a unique format that runs every few months, which allows both the fundraising CEOs and the investors to incorporate RESI into their regular business schedules.
  • LSN has developed an expert system that not only ranks technology assets but also matches the right technology asset to the right investor, making RESI partnering meetings extremely compelling and efficient for both the buy side and sell side.

LSN Next Stage:  Working with Asia partners to take advantage of the global partnering “ecosystem” and build a two way bridge between US/Europe and Asia

LSN is seeking partners that can complement and augment the next stage of growth for LSN and RESI internationally. The ideal partners want to leverage LSN’s global reach by using LSN to help build its global brand awareness, source out-of-reach global technology assets and bring global early stage players to the Asia region.

LSN’s ecosystem encompasses both the ‘sell side’ fundraising CEOs and scientist/entrepreneurs and the ‘buy side’ investors and channel partners in the early stage life science market place. RESI also offers service providers an opportunity to access this ecosystem.

What is needed, and what LSN can offer, is a new approach to the global early stage marketplace and a new set of programs and offerings specifically designed to connect global companies with new partners in Asia.  This can be accomplished by leveraging the ecosystem that LSN and the RESI Conference Series has created.
