AI & Longevity at RESI

7 Apr

By Caitlin Dolegowski, Marketing Specialist, LSN

The Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) conference series proudly highlights active investors, early-stage founders, and industry leaders advancing drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health. RESI is unique in its focus on early-stage life science and healthcare, but in recent years, has gone even further to cut out space specifically for artificial intelligence (AI) and age-tech innovation. To do this, RESI conferences feature specialized content for startups and strategic partners in these industries through dedicated panels and pitch competitions.

Innovative advancements within these industries and a deep dive into insights around how to navigate the early-stage investment ecosystem specific to conversations happening in AI and Longevity arenas are a major addition and highlight at RESI. Panels provide discussions with investors, industry experts, entrepreneurs, and strategic partners answering questions about early-stage fundraising and age-tech and AI innovation.

View sample panel sessions from Digital RESI March:


Digital Health & Wellness
Silver-Tech Focusing on Preventative Care
According to the US Census Bureau, the 65+ population grew by 34% since 2010. These seniors are prioritizing preventative care and the market is responding with products and services focused on staying healthy, specifically those focused on daily exercise, diet, and other factors impacting independence and longevity. How can startups in this booming industry stand out to investors?


Defining AI Investment
AI-Exclusive Investors Share Their Perspectives
Hear from leaders investing exclusively in AI products across drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health. Learn more about what AI-exclusive investors have to offer healthtech startups. Learn what entrepreneurs can gain from partnerships that understand their tech and how to take it to the next level.

The lens on age-tech and AI continues at our next conference, Digital RESI, June 7-9. The focus on these markets will include panel topics:


Tuesday, June 7 – 2PM EDT | The Neuroscience of Aging
Aging Impact on the Nervous System

Age-tech startups are addressing negative impacts of neurological aging, such as cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s. The goal of many of these early-stage companies is to stimulate neurogenesis and enhance brain plasticity to combat these conditions.

Thursday, June 9 – 11 AM EDT – Age-Tech Care Management
Technology Improving the Lives of Older Adults

Older adults are looking to age-tech to provide freedom, medical access & adherence, safety, wellness and even companionship later in life. Age-tech allows seniors, and their caregivers make personalized choices about their own aging journeys. Hear from investors specializing in longevity innovation.


Wednesday, June 8 – 11 AM EDT – AI vs. Life Science
Which Comes First in Early-Stage Investment?

How to prioritize tech-first vs. biology models? How can each model leverage their position in the industry and be successful in the early stage? How can startup founders balance the “bio” and “tech” and highlight their strengths to investors? What are some strategies to help fundraising executives target the right investors for their company and pivot their pitch to each?

Thursday, June 9 – 2 PM EDT – Team, Tech, & Traction in Early-Stage AI
Building Your Startup as a Triple Threat

Early-stage investors will take a chance on a team, tech, or traction. It’s rare to find all three in a company seeking Seed to Series B funding. This discussion will explore the value of each to help early-stage startups highlight their unique assets and improve their position in weaker areas.
