This year we are inviting applications to present from Seed companies (pre-series A funding, up to 1M seed capital raised, established in the last 3 years) or Projects for the Rising Stars Showcase.
The showcase will consist of around 20 elevator pitches. These companies/projects will be selected from applications from USA, Europe and RoW. There will be a multidisciplinary group of presenters, which will cover drug development, diagnostics and biomarkers, device, tech and digital. These will be promising companies and technologies looking for finance for early stage development. At the end of this will be judges giving awards and a reception.
The format is a 3-minute elevator pitch (few slides can be used) followed by a couple of questions by the moderator/audience (if timing allows), 4 minutes total. Qualifying companies will receive a complimentary 1-day (28th) forum access and a free elevator presentation slot. Additional upgrades like attending the 8th HTIF and option to bring colleagues are available for a fee.
! All packages include a complimentary 3 min presentation slot during the Rising Stars Showcase
! Applications must be approved by the organisers
Rising Stars Showcase registration will open later in 2020.
