4 Tips on How to Get the Most Out of Partnering
By Alejandro Zamorano, VP of Business Development, LSN

The life science partnering conference circuit provides entrepreneurs with many venues to book meetings with potential strategic partners and investors, and ultimately to build relationships that will lead to allocations. When it comes to raising funds for your emerging life science company, partnering conferences are an important aspect of a campaign. Below are 4 key lessons on how to use a partnering system effectively:

Register Early

Several advantages are derived from registering early for partnering events. Conferences typically open their partnering systems several weeks prior to the event, so by registering early you ensure that you will have access to partnering and can send meeting requests early. Due to this flurry of early activity, some investors will fill up their schedules well in advance. Registering early can also boost your chances with investors who plan their schedules closer to the event...

Heighten Your Visibility at the Redefining Early Stage Investments Conference (RESI)

JPM turns San Francisco into an industry hub every January, and it's strategically vital to make your company shine during the biggest and busiest yearly event attended by investors and life science entrepreneurs.  While there are many conferences and receptions taking place, there are relatively few opportunities for promoting your company's brand among qualified life science investors.

That's why we designed the RESI Innovation Challenge to provide a better showcase for life science companies. By providing space in the RESI Exhibit Hall for successful applicants to place poster displays, the RESI Innovation Challenge puts your brand out there throughout the full-day event, keeping you on view for the hundreds of investors who will be attending RESI throughout the day. More importantly, your message will provide a talking point that can springboard conversations about your technology, your market opportunity, and your company's progress. Even if you're out doing a full tour of meetings, your message will still be getting out there in the RESI Exhibit Hall. If you place in the top 3 participating companies, LSN will also showcase you online in Next Phase...
