The conference will also host the return of industry-specific panel sessions, prestigious keynote speakers, the 4th annual Lion’s Den, networking and high-visibility connections to sponsors and attendees alike, all of which will complement the main focus: connecting the region’s best and brightest entrepreneurs.

Panel Sessions


Broad Street Bullies Pub

Everyday Analytics
Data is everywhere and knowing how to harness it goes to the very core of today’s businesses success. The Everyday Analytics panel discussion will bring together industry experts to talk about practical ways companies can be more analytical and data aware. We will focus on such things as segmentation (e.g. how to break down something into more manageable chunks like customers or markets) and efficiency (e.g. how to focus on the important stuff or get the most out of the resources you have). Representatives on the panel will come from both the user’s and provider’s perspectives. For the users; how we solved the problem, what tools we used. For the providers; look at all these great tools out there that make tackling this problem easy. The goal is to provide information that is actionable not theoretical.

Investing in healthcare startups beyond the seed-stage; indications for growth and scalability
Many Philadelphia-area companies express concern about a lack of local Series A investment capital (for rounds of $5-7 million). One way to address this need is for our companies to attract capital from outside the region. Hear from a panel of investors from across the country [and around the world] discuss why they have or would invest in Philadelphia, what they see as the strengths of our region, and what they might suggest to make our region more attractive to outside capital.
