Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 We would like to invite you to attend Fourth Annual MedTech Conference called 'A Win For All: Entrepreneur, Investor and Acquirer Dilemma'

 The half-day event is organized by the Life Sciences Angel Network with participation and support from Piper Jaffrey Investment Bank, AdvaMed, Silicon Valley Bank and American Heart Association.

This year our conference is taking a unique look at the success dilemma for the investor, a corporate acquirer and entrepreneur. In addition, medical device companies now days are 'cast aways', hence quite a few approaches have to change in a way we build and bring medical technology to the market.

 Hosts: David Cassak, Steve Levin, and Milena Adamian, MD (LSAN)
