As we gear up to put this difficult but memorable year behind us, it’s also time to think about our annual INVEST conference, which we will host virtually in April 2021. We aim to feature the most interesting startups across healthcare’s diverse sectors. So, get ready to apply to INVEST Pitch Perfect if you belong to any one of the following healthcare verticals – biopharma, medical devices, diagnostics, health IT or health services.
Here is the application form. The deadline to apply is 5 ET, Friday, January 15.
To be eligible to participate, you need to fulfill any one of the following criteria
- Raised at least $1 million;
- Raised a Series A round;
- Have at least one qualified institutional investor or strategic investor that you can identify
Companies should also be looking for additional funding in the next 12 months. When completing the 2-page executive summary, please describe clearly the unmet need in the marketplace your company seeks to address, what your value proposition is and how your product works in terms of the science behind it. If you have results of a pilot or other examples of clinical validation, please include it. We are also interested in your go-to-market strategy.
This will help investors screen your application based on the following criteria:
- Business Idea
- Market Opportunity
- Revenue Model
- Founder’s Experience
Each category will lead to the selection of five to six startups who will be judged by a group of leading healthcare investors, both traditional and corporate VCs. Good luck as you fill out the application form. Again, the deadline to apply is 5 ET, Friday, January 15.
