Event Details

Xconomy Xchange: The Icos ImpactIcos was once the great hope for Seattle biotech. Founded in 1990 with investment from Bill Gates and inspirational leadership from George Rathmann, it went on over the next 15 years to assemble a team of 700 employees and create a $1 billion molecule. For a while, it looked like it would survive as the only big, independent, profitable biotech company in the Seattle area. The story didn't unfold that way, as Eli Lilly bought the company for $2.3 billion in 2007 and gave pink slips to most of the local workforce. Some Icos alumni stayed on to help build CMC Biologics, and some left the region for new opportunities. But many talented scientists and businesspeople have stayed in the Northwest, building the next generation of Seattle life sciences companies. Come join Xconomy on November 27 as we bring together some of the leading Icosahedrons (yes, there's a trivia question there) for a lively evening of war stories, networking, and thinking about what's ahead for Seattle biotech.
