LICA seeks healthcare heroes for next forum

Pitching coach: Long Island Capital Alliance Executive Director Carol Lane and the rest of the LICA directors will select the presenters for the Sept. 27 Healthcare Capital Forum.

Fresh from its successful June 9 Cybersecurity Capital Forum, the Long Island Capital Alliance has put out the call for its next inventors-meet-investors networker, this focused on one of Long Island’s most active verticals: healthcare.

The nonprofit capital-formation and business-development organization is accepting business-plan applications through July 21 from early-stage healthcare companies interested in pitching at the Healthcare Capital Forum, scheduled for Sept. 27 at RXR Executive Park in Melville.

Like other LICA forums, the Healthcare Capital Forum will allow entrepreneurs to pitch their plans and products to an audience of potential investors, while an “industry investor panel” critiques the presentations and discusses current marketplace trends.

Presenters should be prepared to present multimedia pitches running seven to eight minutes and to answer questions from the investor panel and audience members. The Long Island Capital Alliance has not yet named the panel members or keynote speaker for the Sept. 27 forum.

To date, LICA’s quarterly capital forums – each focused on a different industry sector, including technology, manufacturing and others – have helped dozens of regional companies raise $150 million in investment capital, according to the Capital Alliance.

Sponsors for the next Healthcare Capital Forum include Melville law firm Carter Deluca Farrell & Schmidt LLC, accounting giant EisnerAmper, the New York Institute of Technology and the Long Island Software & Technology Network, among others.
