But building a venture takes an entire team of individuals with very different skillsets and strengths. Come and hear from our panel of industry experts and entrepreneurial talents as they discuss their personal journeys and diverse paths before taking the plunge into the world of biotech startups. This event will also provide opportunities for networking and connecting with other like-minded individuals across the industry.
