BioSTL Attracts International Healthcare Innovators to St. Louis
Inaugural GlobalSTL Health Innovation Summit Connects Israeli and Irish Technologies to Local Healthcare Systems to Cultivate Economic Growth
ST. LOUIS – The full strength of the St. Louis region’s healthcare industry will be on display for companies from Israel and Ireland – two of the world’s powerhouses in healthcare innovation – at the inaugural GlobalSTL Health Innovation Summit on June 28, 2017.
GlobalSTL, an initiative of BioSTL, has identified 13 Israeli and Irish companies, plus one U.S. company with ties to St. Louis, to pitch their technologies to decision-makers from local hospitals and businesses, as well as a cadre of venture capitalists looking to invest in new companies.
The goal is three-fold: (1) provide St. Louis companies access to cutting-edge technology to boost their competitive advantage; (2) grant the international companies access to prized U.S. customers and strategic partners; and (3) leverage the first two wins to convince these international companies to open a U.S. headquarters in St. Louis, thus creating jobs and bringing economic activity into the ecosystem.
