The Faces of Digital RESI June

26 May

By Rory McCann, Marketing Manager & Conference Producer, LSN

Funding in early-stage life science and healthcare has been booming throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, but as we face inflation and a potential economic downturn, the future is not as clear. RESI is much more than a partnering conference in that it also offers value and insight from experts in a variety of formats, one such being panels. RESI panels are primarily run by investors discussing the latest trends and forecasting for specific investment types or sub-sectors. Additionally, RESI offers Tales from the Road panels, which are informal discussions from early-stage entrepreneurs about their fundraising journeys, offering advice and sharing experiences.

Check out the latest panelist lineup from Digital RESI, June 7-9. Sign up to hear from each speaker on their outlooks and best practices while navigating partnerships, deals, and building strong startups.
