RESI Partnering Tips: How to Fill Your Day with Meetings on January 14th

12 Dec

By Bryanna Allison, Business Development Manager, LSN

If you’ve registered for RESI San Francisco, then it’s likely that your goal is to book a strong slate of meetings, followed by a full day of face-to-face meetings with investors at RESI.  Here is our advice for partnering success at RESI:

  • Fill out your profile! This will provide investors with information above and beyond what you can fit in your intro message. If you fill out the key fields in your profile, attendees can revert back there for more information.
  • Use the filters in the sidebar when searching for meeting partners! Whether you are a startup, investor or service provider, the filters are in place to make your lives easier. You can pick a category of attendees to search, then use the filters to narrow down to the most relevant fits for you, such as investors who are interested in your sector.
  • Send as many relevant meeting requests as possible. Always use the “book a meeting” option for initial contact.
  • Put effort into the message you are sending along with your meeting requests. Tell them what you’re doing, who you are, why you’d be a great fit to work together and what you’re looking to get out of the relationship. Keep it concise, but informative!
  • Follow up on your requests. You can use the “send a message” option in RESI Partnering to send follow-up notes, or if you have the investor’s contact info you could send an email directly.
  • Continue to check the platform regularly. New investors, startup and service provider attendees are added every day. If you want to focus on newly added profiles, you can change the order of search results from ‘Order alphabetically’ to ‘Order by date approved’ and look at who’s joined since your last visit.
  • Join our partnering tutorials so you can see it all firsthand! Please visit our website for the complete partnering tutorial schedule.
  • Bring your partnering schedule to RESI – either print it out or have it available on your phone.

Using the partnering platform effectively can help you make the most out of RESI! It’s there so you know exactly who is coming and exactly who you need to talk to. Don’t miss out on our largest event of the year and this excellent opportunity to network with over 500 life science investors.

Last Call for RESI SF Innovation Challenge Applications!

5 Dec

By Karen Deyo, Senior Investor Research Analyst, LSN

The deadline for applying to the RESI SF Innovation Challenge is tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 6th, and this is the last call for companies to submit their applications for consideration. The Innovation Challenge is a unique competition, where companies are selected using criteria such as innovativeness, stage of development, market size and opportunity and competitive landscape. The top companies, identified for their ‘investability,’ present posters in the exhibit hall on the day of the conference, competing for ‘investments’ of ‘RESI Cash’ from attendees to win prizes.

Participation in the Innovation Challenge can benefit finalists in many ways, including the increased exposure gained by the feature in the LSN Newsletter, the printed RESI Program Guide, as well as onsite signage at RESI. In addition, companies that actively seek ‘investments’ from attendees find that this can lead to many productive ad hoc meetings, furthering their fundraising campaigns in sometimes unexpected ways.

Fee structure

What about the RESI Innovation Challenge?

Those who are familiar with RESI know of the RESI Innovation Challenge, a competition for companies on the day of the conference, where they present posters in the exhibit hall and compete for ‘investments’ of ‘RESI Cash’ from attendees, with the most successful winning prizes at the end of the day. The RESI Innovation Challenge is unique in that it involves a rigorous merit-based selection process that assesses the ‘investability’ of a company based on the innovativeness of their technology, the stage of development and potential market size, to name a few of the many criteria. The Innovation Challenge has always been extremely selective, with many more applying than are accepted to participate. Participation in the Innovation Challenge for selected companies is at no extra cost, to ensure that the selective nature of the Innovation Challenge remains solely merit based (apply here). However, we have found that a large number of companies would like the opportunity to present their companies to the broad audience in attendance at RESI. To accommodate them, we are launching the RESI Featured Company Pitch Sessions.
