What is the Innovator’s Pitch Challenge?

The Innovator’s Pitch Challenge (IPC) is an opportunity for early-stage companies to gain additional exposure to conference attendees, pitch directly to a panel of relevant investors, and participate in a live Q&A session. Participating companies pay registration and a $350 pitching fee to host their company materials on the Live Agenda and participate in the live pitch session.

Company materials include, but are not limited to:

  • Pitch Deck
  • Website URL
  • Logo
  • Brief Description
  • Executive Summary
  • Pitch Video (3-4 mins.)
  • Contact Info

The live pitch sessions during RESI Longevity are available to the entire conference, but include a curated panel of investor judges to conduct the Q&A.

Who Should Apply?

Early-stage life science companies actively raising seed capital (25K-2MM), Series A (2MM-10MM), or Series B (10MM-50MM) use the IPC to get in front of the panel of qualified investor judges in their market segment and pitch their company and product. Early-stage companies are encouraged to submit an application, along with a pitch deck and an executive summary. Once selected to pitch, companies can submit their video and supplemental materials for investors to review prior to the live session. Applications are due Friday, August 27.

How Does it Work?

Pitching companies will have a dedicated webpage on the Live Agenda, which greatly increases visibility to investors. Prior to the live pitch session, the investor panel will review submitted pitch materials and prepare questions.

Each company has 10 mins. set aside for their participation. During the session, the pitching company delivers a brief (1-2 min.) elevator pitch, and saves the rest of their time for investors’ questions, feedback and commentary. The session is open to all registered RESI Longevity attendees.

Voting & Prize

All attendees are encouraged to vote for the most innovative company. Each session’s winner will be announced after the conference on the conference website and in the Age-Tech Bulletin and Next Phase newsletters. The first prize winners will receive complimentary tickets to 3 RESI Partnering Week events of their choice (2 tickets per event).
