Digital RESI November Innovator’s Pitch Challenge

15 Oct

By Gregory Mannix, Chief Conference Officer, Vice President International Business Development, LSN

Attending Digital RESI as a fundraising company is all about making connections with investors, strategic partners, service providers and other companies and entities that can help move your project to the next phase. One way for a company to maximize their visibility is the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge. Approved companies will upload a pre-recorded 4-minute pitch and take part in a livestreamed Q&A Session with a panel of expert investors. Furthermore, each participant will be featured on the Digital RESI Live Agenda with a dedicated landing page like this:

We caught up with Joe Camaratta (JC), President and CEO of Quantitative Radiology Solutions (QRS), to ask him about his own experience pitching at Digital RESI September.

How was your pitch session experience?

JC: The advice from the RESI team was invaluable in preparing our materials for our investor pitch.  In addition to advice on the pitch deck itself, the team provided examples of other collaterals useful in introducing our company to potential investors. The panel provided valuable advice on additional data to reinforce the importance of the problem that we are solving, and on our competitive differentiation.  I reached out to several members of the panel regarding further discussion of our technology. 

Did you have a productive RESI conference?

JC: QRS identified over 40 potential investors where our current raise would be a good fit for their investment philosophy. We were able to establish an introduction with many of them using the RESI partnering platform.  In addition, the panel sessions provided timely advice on how investors are adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic, and their expectations of entrepreneurs. 

Do you anticipate follow-up meetings with any investors from the session or from RESI?

JC: We have already followed-up with 10 investors to provide additional information around our opportunity. In addition, we continue to target those investors that we identified as potential fits but did not have time for a discussion at RESI. 

When asked about his participation as a panelist on live pitch Q&A sessions, Gary Gershony, a member of Life Science Angels said, “The pitch sessions at RESI were a great opportunity to engage with the CEO/Founders of very innovative Life Science startups. Despite the COVID-related transition from in-person to virtual meetings, the RESI team did an outstanding job organizing these sessions, ensuring that the live Q&A was very productive, and facilitating follow-up with these exciting companies.”

We are currently accepting applications for the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge at Digital RESI November on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to pitch and connect with investors and strategic partners who are interested in learning more about your company!
