Bio+Tech was started as a monthly gathering to bring together the best and the brightest entrepreneurial minds in biomedicine and combine them with leaders in the SF tech start-up world. The idea was that we have an amazing collection of biomedical entrepreneurial minds in SF and with the advent of bio-incubators and tech breakthroughs, the barriers to starting a bio start-up continue to drop. There’s also a curiosity about biomedicine in the tech realm.
Michael Shuster speaks on the changing IP landscape and how that affects biomedical entrepreneurship.
And, Bio+Tech is purposefully kept free. Whether you’re an undergrad or grad student, or on your 5th start-up, everyone is welcome and encouraged to come. I believe firmly that cost should not be a barrier to attendance. And, please pass this along to people you think would be interested in Bio+Tech – that’s how we keep new, fresh ideas coming in to the group!
