MedCity News will host its annual INVEST conference online, April 19-23. INVEST is a premier international healthcare investing event hosted in partnership with MHIN, a Midwest healthcare investor organization. The conference brings together active investors and promising startups in biopharma, diagnostics, medical devices, health IT, and health services.
INVEST will address six broad themes through a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions:
Public Health & Health Equity
Healthcare Investing & Financing
Ask the Investor
Additionally, MedCity News is hosting intimate sessions that will allow startups to understand the investment strategies of leading healthcare investors and give them the opportunity to engage in a Q&A with them. Each session will feature one investor who will outline his or her investment philosophy and area of interest, and 10 startups will be able to participate. Startups who choose to register for this session will be asked to provide company and contact information that will be shared with the presenting investor to facilitate interaction after the session.
Confirmed Speakers (more to be added): Ellen Herlacher, Principal, LRV Health
