Can you believe the San Diego Biotechnology Network is three years old now? We held our first SDBN event in November of 2008, and our objective was to improve networking opportunities for local biotech professionals. After 3 years, how are we doing? We’d like to celebrate and also get your feedback on how we can help you even more in 2012. Join us again at Green Flash in Mira Mesa from 5:30-8:30 p.m. December 12th for some great networking, food, and beer (for purchase, non-alcoholic beverages available as well). Last time we had upwards of 130 people, and this time we’ve got the place to ourselves and we’ll also get tours of the facility. Beer is biochemistry, and two of the founders of Green Flash worked at Invitrogen back in the day!
In addition, we’ll do the ever popular ‘introduce a colleague’ activity. We’ll collect business cards from those interested in participating, each take one, then find and learn about the person we each drew. Then, we’ll each introduce the person we drew at the microphone. It’s a great way to meet people, practice your presentation skills, and get exposure.
This event is available for sponsorship, contact us for more information.
