California Biotech Virtual Speed Networking Event October 20th 2020

The San Diego Biotechnology Network began connecting life science professionals in 2008, and expanded into the bay area in late 2019, holding one very successful speed networking event, with additional in person events delayed due to COVID-19. Since that time, we’ve had two very exciting advances, we held first virtual SDBN speed networking event, and we created the Los Angeles Biotechnology Network. California’s innovation has resulted in advances in life saving drugs, development of cutting edge technologies, and a robust ecosystem that supports entrepreneurs with top notch research institutions, funding, incubators, and community.

We’re bringing the life science professionals in the California biotechnology hubs together for the first California Biotech Virtual Speed Networking event October 20th, 2020. The event will be unlike any other, featuring parallel panel discussions that attendees can submit and moderate, as well as interact directly with panelists, as well as to participate in speed networking throughout the event. We’re making this event interactive before, during, and after the event, by allowing you to help choose the panels we’ll be featuring, and moderate them. Here are our initial ideas for panels we’ll feature, and we’re also open to your ideas and need help moderating, please fill out this form to volunteer as a speaker, moderator, or to share your panel topic:
  • COVID-19 Vaccines, Treatments and Diagnostics
  • Bridging California’s Innovation Hubs
  • Regional Partnering and Events
  • Rebuilding With Purpose: Improving Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Post-COVID-19
  • Innovations in Oncology
  • New Technologies: Synthetic Biology, Plant-Based Foods
  • Harnessing the microbiome

After the panel discussions, we’ll open up “zoom” style rooms so that you can interact with the panelists and network with others interested in the topic. We’ll also have our usual career development sessions, helping both job seekers and hiring companies make meaningful connections.

Tickets are only $15 to attend the event, and all proceeds will be donated to the California Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund for victims of the current devastating fires and long term recovery and prevention. For our August SDBN event ,w we were able to donate $1,100 to the San Diego Food Bank, and hope to double or even triple this amount to help those affected by the wildfires. Click here to register, we hope to see California biotech professionals from all over the state, at this historic event.
