Dear Life Science Industry Professionals,
Digital Garage and Link-J, in cooperation with the Japan Society of Northern California, are bringing the worlds of AI and Life Science together!
We are excited to announce our upcoming event, which is the first in a series that will explore emerging technologies and startups in the evolving ecosystem of the life science industry.
The event will be held on June 22 (US) / June 23 (Japan) in a hybrid format at the DG717 coworking space in downtown San Francisco and on Zoom for online participants. It will feature startup pitches from prominent emerging leaders, panel discussions with experts, and networking opportunities to meet peers in the industry.
Joining us is a team of knowledgeable speakers from a selection of innovative companies. Multiple is investing in the promising area of neuro-diversity in the diagnosis and treatment of behavioral disorders, such as autism. SpectrumAi modernizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy with data-driven tools that measure objective outcomes. Knowtex, a DX SaaS company, uses AI to transcribe doctor-patient conversations and automatically create medical letters (medical forms that serve as proof of insurance reimbursement). Yuma Nishikawa, a representative from DG Daiwa Ventures, will also be presenting.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from thought leaders, connect with industry peers, and gain valuable insights into the US-Japan healthcare connection perspective!_

OUR AMAZING SPEAKERS
Dan Feshbach | Chief Executive Officer, Multiple, Autism Entrepreneur and Investor
Dan is a social entrepreneur creating new possibilities for people with autism. Before launching Multiple, Dan co-founded TeachTown, a digital education platform for children with autism that was sold in a substantial exit and now serves over 170,000 students every month in more than 1,000 school districts. He also co-founded Oak Hill School, a certified special education facility. Dan is a founding organizer of the Autism Impact Fund and an advisor to K-Ventures. Dan’s passion for neurodiversiy is deeply personal—his son, Reed, was diagnosed with autism at just two years old. When Dan couldn’t find any resources to engage his son in learning, he decided to build what didn’t exist. Throughout his career, Dan has helped countless autism innovators navigate toward funding, growth, and exponential impact. This work is the genesis of Multiple, his newest venture, connecting an ecosystem of entrepreneurs and funders around transformative technologies focused on autism.
