Introducing RESI AI and RESI Longevity

22 Apr

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.

Life Science Nation and YAFO Capital Announce ACCESS CHINA Forum (Spring 2021) – China Innovation Out-Licensing Event at Healthtech Partnering Week

25 Feb

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

In 2021, Life Science Nation (LSN) launched the digital Healthtech Partnering Week (HPW), which consists of the renowned digital Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) 3-day event, 4D Meets AI 2-day event, and the Longevity, Health & Innovation (LHI) 2-day event, and now introducing ACCESS CHINA 2-day forum. LSN introduced this new open-concept conference theme in order that other independent conferences could participate in the week-long event with access to LSN’s premier partnering capability, which matches early-stage companies with strategic investment and licensing partners. HPW welcomes global partnering events to leverage the LSN global partner network, providing an incredible value to all attendees.

YAFO Capital‘s ACCESS CHINA Forum is a quarterly corporate access event series between China and Western biopharma. It is a leading deal-making platform for Western pharma and biotech leaders looking to enter or expand in the Chinese market, and for Chinese companies to enter the global market. ACCESS CHINA Spring Forum, which focuses on China biotech innovation and out-licensing opportunities, adds to the HPW momentum. The Forum creates a great opportunity for LSN’s buy-side global partner network of investors, pharma and corporate strategics seeking equity and licensing opportunities to look at elite technology assets coming out of Asia. The scientist-entrepreneurs and fundraising CEOs coming to HPW via ACCESS CHINA Forum will be able to make new connections with global partners that will help them transition from their regional markets to the global arena.

LSN welcomes any firm that has a standalone life science partnering event happening simultaneously with HPW to join forces. YAFO Capital’s ACCESS CHINA Forum is a great example of how we can work together and deliver elite technology assets to a broader investor and strategic partner audience. Our goal is to reach across borders and events to raise the tide of early-stage partnering and lift all fundraising efforts in order to advance the latest in life-saving technologies and healthcare treatments.
