Innovator’s Pitch Challenge: Now Accepting Applications!

1 Apr

By Rory McCann, Marketing Manager & Conference Producer, LSN

Digital RESI June is fast approaching, and is now accepting applications to the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC)! The sessions take place virtually June 8-10. IPC applications are now open until Friday, May 14.

The IPC is a virtual pitch experience in which participating companies receive a dedicated webpage accessible via the event live agenda, as well as the opportunity to engage in a live Q&A session with investors and strategic partners interested in their products and services.

ARJUNA Therapeutics CEO, Ross Breckenridge said of the March Innovator’s Pitch Challenge:

I’m really happy to have participated in RESI and the IPC format. The investors were predominantly stage-and sector-appropriate for a biotech start up (not always the case in meetings like this). The IPC format was helpful in that we were able to post a short pitch online for on-demand viewing as well as having a ‘live’ discussion. Several of the panelists met with me after the panel, and I’ve been contacted by one investor (so far) outside the meeting after they’d seen the video pitch. I’m happy to recommend this meeting and the IPC format for early-stage biotech companies-I think this was money and time well spent for us.

Selected companies pay their registration, as well as an additional pitching fee, so apply before April 9 to save on super early bird rates! BrainXell CEO, Shouming Du also said of his experience in March:

I have had a very positive experience at RESI, my first time. Workshop, panel discussion, and IPC are complementary to each other. I like IPC format, posting materials in advance and focusing on live discussion in 10 minutes. I feel the extra money I spent on IPC is worth it, not just exposure or those 10 min Q&A. It has forced me to prepare relevant materials.

Thrive Bioscience CEO, Co-Founder & Board Director, Thomas Forest Farb-Horch won Digital RESI March’s IPC, and reached out to the RESI team to share his experience:

The quality of the judges and questions in the four Pitch Challenges were phenomenal. Panels were phenomenal, and I really enjoyed being on the Tools panel. Tad Weems and the other panelists did a fantastic job…My companies received lots of good leads and have lots of work to do, still following up.
