RESI's first Europe event will include three tracks of panel and workshop content aimed at educating entrepreneurs on key topics in life science capital raising. RESI's panels all feature experienced investors who can provide real-world insights to entrepreneurs and reveal their decision-making process and what catches their eye in a deal.

RESI Europe's agenda includes our first ever panel on the Greater European Early-Stage Ecosystem, and a new combined look at Angels and Seed Funds to provide entrepreneurs with actionable insights for their first capital raise. Popular special topic panels return, including AI in Healthcare and Microbiome, and two panels are focused on how to source investors from the Asia region - Asia Therapeutic Investors and Asia Corporates & Strategics. Additionally, RESI Europe features panels on every major life science vertical and on some key investor types such as Family Offices and Corporate Venture Capital.
