Our back-to-the-classroom event this Fall will focus on Bio/Pharmaceutical Industry in Massachusetts - Trends, Opportunities and Challenges. The event will include reception and dinner, brief speeches by 3-4 speakers and a panel discussion. Our last such event was sold out with over 130 attendees!
We look forward to exploring the following discussion topics:
What advantages does the Greater Boston area offer to biotech and pharmaceutical companies?
What have the companies done to leverage the environment in Massachusetts? What are some key trends in the industry today?
What is the state government doing or what can they do to facilitate this growth?
What opportunities are presented to different parties (e.g. start-ups, pharmas, scientists, academic researchers, VCs)? How can they take advantage of the opportunities?
What are the challenges faced by the biotech/pharmaceutical companies in this area and in general?
