29 Dec

By Joey Wong, Investor Research Analyst, Hong Kong BD, LSN

The Life Science Nation (LSN)‘s RESI JPM San Francisco 2023 is only less than two weeks away! For this conference, the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC) is especially popular and we are featuring over 50 presenting startups from across 14 sessions, each focusing on a specific sector/subsector. The LSN team has been very busy recruiting for active investors and industry experts to join the pitch judge panels. The investor and industry experts were invited to sessions based on their experience, investment interest and expertise. The judges will listen to 4-minutes of company pitches and have 8-9 minutes to engage in Q&A and provide feedback to the pitching companies.
