Life Science Nation (LSN)’s 4D Meets AI partnering conference successfully concluded last Friday, March 19. Over the two-day event, LSN featured seven exceptional startup companies at the intersection of AI and life science through the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC).

Each company was featured on a dedicated landing page that hosted their pitch video and supplementary materials, and they participated in a live Q&A session with a panel of investor pitch judges. Conference attendees were able to visit these landing pages or join the live Q&A sessions, and they were encouraged to vote for their favorite IPC companies before the end of the conference.

Many thanks to all the IPC companies for their hard work promoting their technologies and to the pitch judges who supported each session with their feedback. Each company was judged on their supporting materials, as well as their live pitch and Q&A.
