About RESI Partnering Week

Life Science Nation’s RESI Partnering Week takes place September 13-17, 2021, hosting three digital partnering conferences: Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI), RESI AI, and RESI Longevity. These digital partnering conferences function as an early-stage fundraising trifecta, providing opportunities for start-ups to connect with investors and strategic partners based on product fit and stage of development. RESI has a longstanding reputation for bringing life science deal-makers together, while its AI and Longevity events host conversations for specific technology and applications, enabling attendees to customize their experience based on their needs. Each conference provides unique opportunities to buyers and sellers, and we hope you’ll join us!

RESI - Redefining Early Stage Investments

Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI)
September 13-15, 2021

The Redefining Early Stage Investments (RESI) conference series brings together startups with early-stage investors and strategic channel partners to maximize the capability of these companies, from seed to series B, to find partners who are a fit for their technology and stage of development. RESI is cross-border and cross-domain, connecting start-ups with ten categories of global investors across the silos of drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health. RESI caters to both the earliest stage startups, those seeking grants, seed and angel capital, and the early-stage firms who seek seed, series A, and B funding.

September 16-17, 2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly reshaping the healthcare landscape and redefining what is possible in life science. RESI AI is a digital partnering conference that connects the investors and strategic partners and matches them to companies developing and commercializing AI technology in drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health to revolutionize healthcare. RESI AI features investors and entrepreneurs sharing their experiences in early-stage funding and what makes a successful partnership. This two-day digital conference provides the opportunity to meet and learn from experts, build relationships, and advance healthcare through the power of AI.

Longevity, Health and Innovation

RESI Longevity
Co-Organized with Mary Furlong & Associates
September 16-17, 2021

The aging boomer population contributed $8.3 trillion in economic activity to the 2018 US economy, and that number is projected to triple by 2050. The need for advancements in drugs, devices, diagnostics, and digital health for the treatment of age-related conditions is crucial. RESI Longevity is a new partnering conference focused on conditions related to aging, market challenges, and solutions via early-stage companies and their promising tech and products. RESI Longevity brings fundraising startups together with investors in age-tech innovation to make deals in order that today’s seniors live longer, healthier lives.

“The greatest lesson is that my background and experiences weren’t enough to enable me to do this without help.

I am a career scientist and R&D operations manager with an MBA in pharmaceutical management.

I had all of the knowledge and tools at my disposal to do what LSN did. But I couldn’t put it all together. I needed LSN to come in and do what they do best.”

Richard Austin, PhD, MBA, President & CEO, Reglagene
