What’s the Big Deal?

Register Now!

Our April event this year will showcase some of the ‘Big Deals’ in the region—including significant financing events, strategic customer acquisitions and partnerships. Our panel will discuss the behind-the-scenes efforts that built up to the big deal, the changes that have happened since the big deal, and lessons learned.

Bi-coastal expansion, FDA-clearance, Strategic Customer acquisition, Strategic Venture investment, and key partnerships represent some of the accomplishments of this year’s Big Deal Panelists. Learn from the deal makers themselves how they expanded operations, established market presence, and raised capital to grow and scale.
