In this session, we'll hear from brands, retailers and investors that are leading the industry in this area.

"New Investor Models for Medtech Venture Investing" Getting funding for a new medical device company has become increasingly difficult. An ever-shrinking pool of investors interested in early-stage life sciences investing, more stringent capital requirements due to prolonged regulatory and reimbursement timelines, and the need for true sales traction to garner the attention of potential corporate acquirers have all become hallmarks of the current financing environment. How are investors adapting their financing strategies and business models to accommodate these realities and positioning themselves for long-term success? Join a panel of medtech investors as they discuss their approaches to investing in these changing times.

The Value of Real-World Data: Why Investment in Digital Health has (Nearly) Overtaken Funding for Biotech Investment in digital health has nearly overtaken funding for biotech. Venture Capitalists poured an estimated $10 billion into digital health companies in 2017, with 500 deals made in 2016 alone.1 There are over 260,000 digital health apps in the marketplace and the global IoT healthcare market is expected to grow to $405 billion by 2026. But many biopharma companies are still wondering… what’s the real-world impact of digital health and how can it improve my business? This lively panel will explore how digital health is unlocking a treasure trove of real-world data that accelerates clinical trials, supports value-based reimbursement, enables improved adherence, and directly improves efficacy, and in turn, revenues.

Our panel delves into the issues would-be public board members need to think about, including liability issues, liquidity options and limitations, crisis situations, and, in some cases, the glare of the media spotlight.
