Five in 5

Five in 5 in the Hot Seat

Five innovative companies will have the opportunity to give their five-minute pitches to a panel of judges and investors at the conference, while receiving on-the-spot critiques. This hot seat is a fast, fun, and interactive forum, giving entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their technologies in front of world-class leaders and investors. Voted on by audience members using their mobile devices, as well as the investor panel of judges, one entrepreneur was crowned the “hottest” device company in Southern California.

Congrats to presenter & winner, Bradley Messmer, Ph.D., CEO & Founder of Abreos Biosciences for winning the Five in 5 in the Hot Seat session for DeviceFest 2016! To learn more about Abreos Biosciences, visit their website at
