Event Details

Innovation Bioscience Initiative:

Innovation Bioscience   is a training and incubation initiative focused on bridging the gap between biomedical research and healthcare need. The Deep Dives in Entrepreneurship series provides an opportunity to highlight upcoming training opportunities as well as learn from and connect with the vibrant start-up community of Greater Boston.

This session of Deep Dives in Entrepreneurship will focus on resources for life science start-ups. Getting a new start-up running is challenging, but even more so for life science start-ups that are presented with an additional array of diverse resource challenges. Our panel led by life science industry veteran, Dr. Joanne Kamens, will dive deep into the vast and dynamic resources available to life science start-ups in and around the greater Boston area.
