The deadline to enter the RESI Innovation Challenge for the RESI Philadelphia event (June 3rd) is fast approaching, coming up May 1st. I would encourage every fundraising CEO and scientist/entrepreneur who will be in Philadelphia in early June to go for it! The RESI Innovation Challenge is a great way to instantly get your company from regional mode to global mode as RESI Philly is going to be loaded with international biotech, medtech and digital health partners and investors. A great strategy is to apply for the Innovation Challenge and if you are one of the 35 early stage startups selected, you can use that prestigious selection to help garner more partnering meetings. We are expecting over 300 investors in attendance at RESI, and the ratio of investors to startups is typically 1 to 1. These global investors and partners come to RESI seeking innovative technologies with high potential to scale in global markets. The RESI partnering system is designed to ensure that meetings between investors and startups are based on a strong fit for each other's criteria, and we have often heard that makes RESI a much more productive place to meet than other events...

As with last year, it is a great pleasure to announce Life Science Nation (LSN)'s partnership with Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) in preparation for the RESI Philadelphia conference on Monday, June 3rd, 2019.

South Korea's biotech ecosystem continues to thrive - recently, the government has announced that they will spend over $419M USD to support the pharmaceutical and biotech industry of South Korea, a remarkable increase from last year's pledge of $328M USD (1). The number of venture capital firms focused on life science investments is continuing to increase, and more companies are seeking opportunities to enter the global market, hoping to find key strategic partners and investors to support their growth. Major companies like LG Chem and Samyang Biopharmaceuticals has opened offices in Boston within the last year, and the presence of Korean companies in biotech hubs like Boston will continue to grow...


Entrepreneur Elucidated Series
By Dennis Ford, Founder & CEO, Life Science Nation; Creator of RESI Conference Series

This is a first installment in a series aimed at helping the scientist/entrepreneur become familiar with a natural way to get their message out by working on telling a compelling story. Telling a story starts with finding and getting the storyteller in context themselves first and then on to their audience.

The Real You

Being the real you. Being authentic. Finding your voice. That is what really matters in life and in business. For me, basically where it all starts in the world of the entrepreneur is finding and connecting with your inner voice and allowing that voice to tell your very own personal story. You will find in business that the most successful players are always the best storytellers. Don't worry about storytelling - it is in your DNA; it is a deep part of every culture. It is how we teach and learn. Hopefully, this article will begin to help you get in touch with your voice and your story, as it relates to you building your business. It isn't easy. It's hard work. Above all, it takes practice. As the joke goes: 'How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice!' Make no mistake about the art of storytelling - it is a craft honed by practice. So, if you are not a natural bon vivant, raconteur, story teller, you best better get after it. The good news is: you can do it, but it starts with getting and thinking about your basic story...
