23 Sep

By Caitlin Dolegowski, Marketing Specialist, LSN

Last week, early-stage companies with a focus on conditions of aging were given the opportunity to pitch live at the digital RESI Longevity conference to relevant investor judges and industry experts as part of the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC). We were thrilled to host 15 pitching companies! The companies were divided into three pitching sessions – Medical Devices, Diagnostics & Therapeutics, and Digital Health. Congratulations to our RESI Longevity Innovator’s Pitch Challenge Winners! As the companies with the most votes, each will receive complimentary tickets to future RESI conferences to continue their fundraising efforts. Thank you to all our IPC finalists for providing great pitches and to our judges who came prepared with excellent questions. We look forward to future opportunities to highlight early-stage companies and gain valuable insight into what investors are considering.
