Startups: please boycott Life Sciences & Healthcare Venture Summit from Youngstartup Ventures

We're told Joe Benjamin's Life Sciences & Healthcare Summit is charing companies to present… as such, startups should not support this event.

Note: buying a ticket to an event? sure, no problem. paying to present? not cool. 

fight the power!
