Rejuvenation Startup Summit 2024 reveals full speaker list and program

The largest in-person gathering of CEOs from the worldwide rejuvenation and longevity biotech sector happens this May in Berlin.

The Forever Healthy Foundation has announced the Rejuvenation Startup Summit 2024 program and full speaker list.

Taking place in Berlin on the 10th and 11th of May later this year, the Rejuvenation Startup Summit is a highlight of the longevity calendar. A vibrant networking event, it brings together a raft of individuals and organizations who are aiming to create therapies that can vastly extend the healthy human lifespan; this includes startups, established companies, researchers and members of the longevity venture capital and investor ecosystem.

Longevity.Technology: In addition to an exciting range of presentations from CEOs of startups in the fields of rejuvenation and longevity, the summit features an all-day startup forum for networking, panel discussions, and keynote presentations. Starting midday on Friday and finishing off on Saturday night, the summit offers ample opportunity to connect with some of the most promising leaders in the field. The infamous Saturday night party should also get a mention.

The packed program features keynotes from Hevolution’s Mehmood Khan, the Buck Institute’s Eric Verdin, NUS Singapore’s Brian Kennedy, and our own Phil Newman. Also on the timetable are company presentations, a longevity clinics feature, a VC panel and a longevity panel.
