Congratulations to Digital RESI September Innovator’s Pitch Challenge Winners!

By Joey Wong, Investor Research Analyst, LSN

Life Science Nation (LSN) has successfully concluded the 3-Day Digital Redefining Early Stage Investment (RESI) conference. One of the highlights at the conference was the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC), an opportunity for early-stage companies to pitch live to a panel of investors and industry experts. Nearly 50 companies were featured at this past IPC and over 60 investors and industry experts have participated.

During the 3-Day RESI, each company was featured on a dedicated landing page that hosted their pitch video and supplementary materials. They also participated in a live Q&A session with a panel of judges, who are active investors or industry experts in the space. We were happy to see that the live Q&A sessions have attracted attendees from around the world, many of whom cast a vote for their favorite pitches.

Congratulations to the winners who will receive complimentary tickets to future RESI conferences, and many thanks to all the IPC finalists for their hard work preparing for the event, and to the pitch judges who supported each session with their great feedback. We hope to continue the IPC as a unique opportunity to create conversations between early-stage companies and investors, and we look forward to working with other innovative companies at future events!
