About this event

Program Description

We are thrilled to return to an in-person event.

We are pleased to announce the 12th Annual Summer Social Networking Event, Including Lightning Pitches and Keynote Speaker Kendalle Burlin O’Connell, Esq., President & Chief Operating Officer, MassBio, to be held on August 1st.

This is the event of the year that you don't want to miss!

This program features several snapshot presentations, or lightning pitches, from local pre-venture and early-stage Life Science and Medical Device companies. Each pitching company will have 1 minute to impress us with their value proposition, and there will also be plenty of opportunities to network with the companies and fellow members.

If you want to participate in the startup pitches, please fill out the brief application form here.

We typically inform you within a few days if you have been selected to participate so you can begin work on your slide. The company's pitches are presented in the order in which they registered for the event.

Not pitching? Please register now for the event. This has been one of the most well-attended events of the year, with health innovation professionals from all backgrounds coming to see what's new and exciting in the local biotech, med-tech, pharma, and health IT economy.
