But I couldn’t put it all together. I needed LSN to come in and do what they do best.”

Introducing RESI AI and RESI Longevity

22 Apr

By Caitlin Dolegowski, Marketing Specialist, LSN

Life Science Nation (LSN) renames its two newest conferences under the Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) banner. This conference series has provided early-stage life science entrepreneurs a space dedicated to their fundraising efforts through connecting them with partners and capital that are a fit for their product and stage of development. Through the years, LSN has worked with thousands of executives in their search for partnerships, and the secret has always been that it all comes down to finding that right fit. In order to help target these elusive matches, LSN spun two sister conferences, 4D Meets AI and Longevity, Health and Innovation, now RESI AI and RESI Longevity respectively, out of the RESI conference series, designed to further narrow down the early-stage life science players, based on technology and indication.

4D Meets AI has focused on connecting entrepreneurs using AI technology to advance drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health (4Ds) with investors and partners actively seeking AI applications in their themes and portfolios. Longevity, Health & Innovation, co-organized with Mary Furlong & Associates, is a space for fundraising executives targeting diseases that disproportionately affect aging populations to connect with capital and resources specifically in age-tech.

These two conferences are designed to create a more intimate atmosphere within the RESI partnering ecosystem. Each invites a unique attendee, yet both are a digital partnering conferences advancing the mission of the RESI series – to connect technology in life science and health care with well-fitting capital and channel partners – which is why they return this fall as RESI AI and RESI Longevity.

RESI Longevity and RESI AI both take place September 16-17 as two-day digital partnering conferences. Each will feature their own unique lineups of Investor Panels, Educational Workshops, Innovator’s Pitch Challenges and Premier Partnering Platforms. Learn more about each conference and sign up by July 23 to save $100 on super early bird prices!

Timing and Relationship: The Key to Compelling Investor Mandates

8 Apr

By Dennis Ford, Founder and CEO of Life Science Nation, Creator of the LSN Partnering Conference Series

As the life science arena shifts, so do investment and licensing mandates and the technologies that investors and strategic partners seek. Life Science Nation (LSN) is known for its curated partnering database for fundraising early-stage companies across the silos of drugs, devices, diagnostics and digital health. This database has ten categories of investors ranging from angel groups and family offices to VCs, PEs, Big Pharma/Medtech, foundations and the non-dilutive federal, state and regional agencies.

The LSN mantra to healthcare scientist-entrepreneurs and fundraising CEOs is that partnering is a numbers game, and that getting a Global Target List (GTL) of potential partners that are a fit for your stage of development and product set is a crucial step to a successful fundraising campaign. Furthermore, it’s essential to canvass outside your region, engaging global partners to maximize the likelihood of building a relationship that could secure a partnership. 

The LSN Investor Research Team curates the LSN Investor Database, which consists of profiles that fundraising clients can access with an annual subscription. Tools like the database are essential aids for success in a global fundraising campaign. The database features more than ten thousand investor contacts representing several thousand funding and licensing firms. The team’s goal is to keep all the partnering mandates updated in order to ensure the best fit, and this is done through bi-annual interviews. 

These firms are willing to be part of the LSN Investor Platform because we provide them with quality deal-flow, companies that know they are a fit for the firm’s investment theme or partnering interests. Additionally, each year, five Redefining Ealy Stage Investments (RESI) partnering events attract the who’s-who of early-stage life science investing and give them another avenue to connect with fundraising companies that match their interests. These conferences consist of investor panels, workshops, and matched partnering meetings, taking advantage of the profiles the investor research team gathers and the long-term relationships we build while keeping their mandates current.  

The relationship between LSN and the global investor community is deep and has helped hundreds of companies get funded by connecting with investors and partners. Just this week, the Investor Research Team has updated over forty-five mandates, facilitating super fresh profile updates for LSN clients seeking funding. Check out this week’s investor mandates and reach out to your LSN business development representative to view these investors and learn how to get plugged into the LSN partnering ecosystem.
