Biotech Networks Event: Scientific Speed Networking in Seattle September 6th 2023

Biotech Networks is pleased to hold our first event in Seattle! Seattle is home to The Allen Institute, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, the University of Washington, and several world-class biopharma companies. Being in a major epicenter of tech, with Amazon and Microsoft headquarters nearby, Seattle Biotech is also becoming renowned for advances in artificial intelligence.

We’re bringing our patent-pending Scientific Speed Networking to this Pacific Northwest city and inviting life science professionals from Washington State and Oregon as well. We’ve chosen the Optimism Brewery (to be renamed Stoup in late August) near South Lake Union/Capitol Hill, an area that’s home to several biopharma companies and convenient to life science institutions. We also welcome life science professionals in Washington and Oregon to join us, we’ve definitely had folks drive for hours to attend our Scientific Speed Networking events as they’re so unique an valuable. For $35 (see below about volunteering if you’re on a budget), attendees will be served a casual dinner, get a drink ticket, and we’ll use our patent-pending techniques that make building your network easy.
