Over 500 Early Stage Investors Signed Up for RESI @ JPM

20 Dec

By Dennis Ford, Founder & CEO, Life Science Nation; Creator of RESI Conference Series

Partnering is key. RESI is a dedicated partnering conference and will have 1400 meetings in one day. What is the salient difference between RESI and other conferences when it comes to partnering? RESI does not do the traditional “pay-to-pitch” on the podium to an unknown audience. We have found that the audience winds up being a mix of potential partners, other CEOs looking for competitive info and service providers wanting to sell their services. At RESI, when you sign up in our partnering system, investor profiles are highly detailed and tagged, allowing companies to perform searches and find the right investors and partners who are a fit for the companies’ stage of development and product set. This means you have a very high hit-rate on meetings because the RESI investors know that the firm making the request is a fit for their investment mandate.

At LSN, we vet all participating investors and do our best to ensure that those who attend are direct investors, not investment banks or broker-dealers. These global, cross-border, early-stage, from seed to series B, investors come to RESI to source technology assets for their pipelines and portfolios. RESI has helped over 350 companies raise over $500mm in the last three years. Click here to see who has already signed up.
