OneMedPlace today announced panel presentations for the 6th Annual OneMedForum, on January 7-9, 2013, at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.
“We’ve identified a number of timely themes that address the rapidly changing financial environment and ideas on how to build companies in a capital constrained market,” said Brett Johnson, CEO of OneMedPlace, the organizer of the Forum. “These sessions will be invaluable to any investor or entrepreneur looking to build and finance a growth company.”
The Panels will include:
- Changes to Reg D General Solicitation: The Dramatic Catalyst of the JOBS Act. Will this landmark legislation open vast sources of private investment capital previously not available?
- Connected Health: Technology in the Hands of Patients Changes Health Delivery—A Brave New World of Medicine. With smartphones and new diagnostic tools, the day when every patient has a computer chip implanted and feeding data to his/her provider (and payor) is not far off. Better-connected patients with access to more efficient treatment will completely disrupt the healthcare complex.
- Diagnostics: Genome Sequencing, Biomarkers, and the Death of Reactive Medicine. Changes to intellectual property law, decisions to regulate diagnostics as devices, and new advances in biomarkers have dramatically altered the way investors value this sector.
- Crowdfunding: What Role in the Continuum of Financing Early Stage Innovation? Will this represent an important new financing stage before the Angel Capital round? How will traditional investors value this concept of “public venture capital?”
- Bootstrap Finance: Bringing a Device to Market with Limited Resources. Outsourcing, staged development, globalization, and a regulatory paradigm shift will be discussed in the context of appropriate financing strategies.
- Tech Transfer: Tapping into University Technology for Breakthroughs and Competitive Advantage. A wealth of technology exists within U.S. universities, much of it available and increasingly powerful. How will investors tap into this, and what resources foster the spin-out process?
- CEO’s Unplugged will return again. AdvaMed brings us this highly popular panel brings together the top executives in healthcare and life sciences to discuss their outlook on the year ahead.
- Fund Managers Outlook. A candid session with successful fund managers focused on microcap public companies in this space. The decline in research coverage of microcap public companies creates extraordinary opportunity to identify undervalued stocks with significant upside. Hear from the experts, and how they have consistently generated returns significantly higher than the averages.
In addition to these panels, the conference will feature more than 110 company presentations by some of the most promising public and private companies in the sector. The public company track – featuring promising, lesser-known microcap stocks – will be webcast live online on OneMedTV. OneMedForum also features workshops on operational areas of finance, networking sessions and 1x1 meetings.
Over 1,000 attendees – investors, including angel, seed, high-net worth individuals, family offices, institutional, venture capital and private equity — are expected to attend. With a new investor outreach program focusing on virtual networking, registration is up 300% compared to October 2012.
OneMedForum is now in the process of recruiting presenting companies. Interested parties can apply to present and learn more about conference programming at www.onemedforum.com.
Established in 2008, OneMedForum is the conference component of OneMedPlace, which provides an integrated media platform to showcase the best ideas and innovations in health and medicine globally. The media platform also includes: OneMedRadio; OneMedTV, OneMedSentinel; a global database of companies; and OneMedResearch, which tracks promising lesser-known microcap public companies.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).
