ABOUT THE MEETING

The 2015 Autism Investment Conference (AIC2015) is a meeting focused specifically on exploring the rapidly expanding opportunity landscape for business development and investment in autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

The epidemic-like rise in the prevalence of ASD over the past (20) years has created a demand for products and services to support the growing needs across the entire lifespan of individuals living with ASD. From medical products that provide options for clinical diagnosis and care, to assistive technologies that improve daily living, to the housing and residential supports for loved ones as they age out of traditional services, a new market has emerged to address these needs and AIC 2015 has been created to help.

See the AIC 2015 program here!

The goals of this two day meeting are to increase awareness and understanding of the diverse opportunity landscape for new business development among the investment community, and provide an event that helps connect developers with investors. From healthcare and life sciences to education and housing, AIC2015 will introduce entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes working on innovative products that address the unmet needs of the autism community.

AIC is also an event that aims to educate through expert panel sessions that introduce and break down many of the unique opportunities, challenges and risks facing new product development in autism today, including understanding the regulatory environment and exploring reimbursement strategies.

The format of the conference is intended to deliver a balance of relevant content and opportunities for attendees to engage in follow-up discussion and networking events around the conference.
