claireNext week’s digital partnering event, Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI), taking place November 17-19, is fast-approaching! RESI conferences provide early-stage players powerful partnering opportunities, but go beyond traditional pitching and partnering by offering insightful expert investor panels. These panels pull back the curtain to what investors look for when sourcing assets and developing partnerships. RESI’s panels highlight key perspectives relevant to the early-stage life science and healthcare ecosystem.

Panel themes range from Corporate Venture Capital to Early Stage Therapeutics Investments and will provide deep insights on investor perspectives, how investors and strategic partners view the current landscape, and how fundraising entrepreneurs can effectively approach the right investors, among other topics.

Registered attendees can block off their calendars directly in the partnering platform to make sure they don’t miss a panel that fits their interest. If you haven’t yet registered and are interested in hearing from key industry players, it is still not too late to register! Sign up to start partnering and learning from these key players. We hope you’ll join us!
