We presented our story at a Medtech Insight conference in October 2001, where we began dialogues with VCs. We got our first term sheet the following spring and series ‘A’ funding shortly thereafter. There’s no doubt Medtech Insight helped us then, so we’re presenting again, in Boston, as we organize our series ‘B’ funding.

I make it my business to attend many of the major investment banking-orchestrated conferences around the country and throughout the year.

I consistently find that Medtech Insight conferences are an excellent platform for cross-pollination of ideas, strategic alliances and, of course, potential funding − in other words, one-stop shopping for mission-critical partnering and financing activities.  ... the format Medtech Insight uses at their conferences is very effective. In our case, two venture capitalists were particularly interested, both of whom followed up − one of them by phone the next day, who is now conducting advanced due diligence for an investment of approximately $5 million. That's a very good place for us to be right now, thanks to the Medtech Insight conference.
