Winners of Digital RESI June 2021 Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC)

17 Jun

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


Digital Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) June ended on a high note last week, again providing a valuable platform for early-stage life science companies and investors/strategic partners to connect and start dialogue.

This RESI also featured the largest number of Innovator’s Pitch Challenge companies, with almost fifty companies participating. Each company was assigned to one of ten live Q&A sessions featuring investors and industry partners, based on sector/technology.

Attendees voted for their favorite companies throughout the three days of the conference. Check out the winners below!

1st Place – Throne Biotechnologies

Throne is an American therapeutics company aimed at commercializing a novel stem cell technology that can fundamentally reverse diabetes, alopecia areata and other autoimmune diseases through immune education. The patented technology is recognized as the leading “practical cure project” for type 1 diabetes among 594 global projects (JDCA 2020). Stem Cell Educator therapy is a single dialysis-like treatment that fundamentally “resets” a patient’s immune system and corrects the underlying autoimmunity. 200+ patients between the ages of 3 and 70 have been treated in 10 years of clinical research in Spain, China, and US. 70% of type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients demonstrated clinical efficacy. Many patients reduced insulin dosing and some have become insulin independent. This technology has been successfully tried in more than 10 autoimmune diseases including alopecia, lupus, fibrosis, and scleroderma. This therapy is ready to use and is approved to begin three FDA phase 2 clinical trials (type 1 diabetes, alopecia areata, COVID-19). Throne is looking to raise $5M to complete US FDA phase 2 through to commercialization. Throne is open to partnerships, joint ventures, investments, and license arrangements.

2nd Place – Praetego

Praetego is a pre-clinical stage pharmaceutical company with a mission to improve the health and longevity of diabetic patients. Praetego is developing novel small molecules (Amadorins) to alleviate serious diabetic complications, starting with peripheral neuropathy. Amadorins are first-in-class molecules able to inhibit a primary driver of diabetic microvascular disease and are derived from a clinically proven prototype.

3rd Place – Nano PharmaSolutions

A proprietary drug delivery nanotechnology that generates poorly soluble drugs as nanoparticles for better bioavailability. Our NanoTransformer(TM) technology can generate drug nanoparticles through phase transfer method without using any chemicals or solvent. We work with (1) preclinical stage drug developers for animal study formulations and (2) innovative generic companies for generic nanodrug development. We are at revenue stage and our revenue forecast is $150M in 2026 (our target exit time frame).

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!
