If You're Serious About Raising Capital, Check Out The RESI Program

By Dennis Ford, Founder & CEO, LSN


Life Science Nation saw a glaring need to create a Redefining Early Stage Investment Conference (RESI) and launched it just a few years ago.  If you are raising capital or contemplating raising capital, then next week's RESI conference is a great opportunity to get in front of investors.

Who's Meeting Whom at RESI?

Registered RESI attendees have sent more than 1,300 meeting requests to each other, resulting in hundreds of partnering meetings already scheduled. As we go into the last week before the conference, there's still bandwidth available for newly registered startups and investors to book meetings. Each attendee is able to book up to 18 meetings, so it's not too late to register and begin filling up your schedule.

RESI Panel Announcement: Patient Groups
By Michael Quigley, Director of Research, LSN


Few people, if any, have stronger motivations for the advancement of innovative and effective new therapies than the affected patients and their families and friends. Patient groups are established as a way for these individuals to band together around a particular indication or branch of medicine to help move science forward. Formed by patients and for patients, these groups are looking to improve the standard of care by pooling their capital, scientific resources, and networks to aid in both academic and commercial-stage research.

The upcoming RESI Conference will host a patients group panel moderated by Steve Perrin of the ALS Therapy Development Institute. The panel will include the following speakers:

  • Joe Camaratta, Board Member, Founders Affiliate, American Heart Association
  • Annette Bakker, President & CSO, Children's Tumor Foundation
  • Steven Young, President & COO, Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute
  • Monica Gow, Executive Director, Wake Up Narcolepsy

Address: 9B Hamilton Place, Boston, MA, 02108, USA
