LaunchBio, Inc., a national nonprofit dedicated to connecting entrepreneurs with knowledge, capital and talent across the nation’s leading life science hubs, today announced “Larger Than Life Science”, a monthly event open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for North Carolina’s life science and healthcare innovators. The event will be held in the atrium level of the newly renovated Chesterfield Building in downtown Durham, NC, from 4-7 p.m. the first Thursday of each month, starting January 4, 2018.
Larger Than Life Science will offer multiple featured programs during each gathering, so participants can choose from a selection of practical workshops, industry partnering sessions, networking, meetings with investors, panel discussions, office hours, and some fun activities. The monthly programs will draw on LaunchBio’s network of national resources, as well as partnerships with local entrepreneurial support organizations. Larger Than Life Science will serve up refreshments from local breweries, and introduce companies and organizations that are contributing to make our community a great place to live and work.
If you have yet to visit the newly renovated Chesterfield building, you do not want to miss out on this opportunity to see the space, while networking with the entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, techies, pharma partners, executives in transition, service providers, and support organizations that make up our life science community. This new space is sure to become a hub for research and development within the local ecosystem.
MEDIC is excited to be a partner partner in this endeavor with LaunchBio along with the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, NC Biosciences (NCBIO), Digital Health Impact + Transformation (DHIT), and the American Underground. We would like to thank Hutchison PLLC; Michael Best; and CSC Leasing, Inc. for sponsoring this series.
