Meet the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge Judges

15 Sep

By Claire Jeong, Chief Conference Officer, Vice President of Investor Research, Asia BD, LSN


Next week’s RESI Boston will showcase 50+ Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC) finalists across therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics, digital health, and more. These companies will pitch in a live session with a panel of investor and industry expert judges and engage in Q&A. We are thankful for all the judges who will be participating and providing valuable feedback and questions to the IPC finalist companies.

Whether you are an actively fundraising early-stage company, or an active investor/strategic partner looking for targeted deal-flow, it is still not too late to register, engage in partnering meetings with attendees of interest, and join our robust program of investor panels, workshops, and pitch sessions. Below is a splash of participating judges. See you all next week!
