Venture Summit in Boston Recognizes MediBeacon

MediBeacon Selected as "Best Presenter" in The Life Sciences/Healthcare Track

(BOSTON, MA, December 11, 2013) – The 2013 edition of The New England Venture Summit featured a number of Medical Device innovations including MediBeacon’s Optical Renal Function Monitor system.

"We selected the 90 plus Top Innovator Award recipients from around the world. Each and every one of them is a top quality innovator” said Joe Benjamin, CEO and Founder of youngStartup Ventures. "They are all remarkable companies leading the innovation curve in their sector. These firms are proof that technological innovation across many sectors is thriving.”

Unique to youngStartup programs is the pre-conference coaching session allowing each featured company to hone their pitch prior to the big day. Each company then delivers their pitch on dedicated Technology, Cleantech, Life Sciences/Healthcare, and EdTech industry tracks respectively, allowing all investors to efficiently review potential deals.

From within the over 90 Top Innovators four companies were further selected by a panel of Investor judges as “best presenters” based on the merits of their presentations. The New England Venture Summit is the largest Venture Capital/Startup conference in New England.

Steve Hanley, CEO and Founder of MediBeacon, and Terence Stern, Vice President Business Development of MediBeacon represented the Company at the summit. MediBeacon was selected as the “Best Presenter” in the Life Sciences/Healthcare track.

The 8th annual New England Venture Summit connected venture capitalists, corporate VCs, angel investors, technology transfer professionals, senior executives of early stage and emerging growth companies, university researchers, incubators and premier service providers.
