Redefining Early Stage Investments Conference
June 23, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
MaRS, Johnson and Johnson Innovation, JLABS and Life Science Nation (LSN) have launched Canada’s first Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) Conference in Toronto on June 23rd, 2016. The conference will bring together more than 250 fundraising CEOs and nearly 250 early stage investors (a 1:1 ratio) from around the globe, providing the opportunity for dialogue and relationship building, with the goal of eventual capital allocations.
The RESI conference focuses on the diverse breadth of early stage investors that LSN tracks, including Family Offices, Venture Philanthropy Funds, VCs, Angel Groups, Corporate Venture Capital Funds, and more. The recent RESI Conference in San Francisco had nearly 800 registrants and a full partnering floor. Through the RESI Partnering, fundraising executives can have up to 16 scheduled meetings as well as many more ad-hoc meetings with diverse life science investors who fit their company’s technology sector, indication and stage of development. Additionally, through an expansive series of panels and workshops, attendees will have the chance to hear firsthand accounts from investors explaining their current investment mandates and process for identifying and qualifying candidates.
