A quick BioBeers III Update.
The next event will be held this Friday, April 18th at 5 PM at the Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick.
We’re well over the 15 person “private tour” qualification, with 21 people RSVPing in the affirmative thus far. It is still not too late to RSVP, but at this point, you can just show up on a whim. Feel free to forward this invitation to friends or other interested parties or to bring a date/significant other if you think they’ll tolerate a Friday night out with a bunch of Science Geeks consuming fermented beverages.
Attendees will cover a good spectrum of different groups in the county (we’re even letting people in Montgomery county to attend) including people from DynPort, Amaxa, Integrated Biotherapeutics, Veracity Biotechnology, FiberCell Systems, The NIH, Lonza, MedImmune, Advanced Product Enterprises, BridgePath Scientific, NABI, LifeLine Cell Technologies, Quanta, Marligenand a few others who wish to remain anonymous. I am hoping to hear from a couple people from Fort Detrick, SuperArray, Akonni and Invitrogen
I am also glad that we have 2 sponsors, thus far. FiberCell Systems will be supplying Brats for the grill and Kforce Scientific Staffing is going to bring some other munchies. Mix that with a couple of the 8-16 different beers Flying Dog will have on tap and a few old faces: this could be the most important biotech networking event in Frederick County this year. At least until we have another Happy Hour at FITCI once the weather breaks.
There are also ample facilities for making a presentation. If you have data, an idea to pitch, a story or wares to sell, let me know. We can set that up.
I started BioBeers “East” borrowing the model established by the original group in Colorado. A fundamental objective is to promote our region as the top-tier bio-cluster in the country by showing we are a thriving and nurturing bio-entrepreneurial community. BioBeers is intended to be a catalyst, where like minded bio-preneurs gather regularly to share ideas, cultivate business relationships and build lifelong friendships.
I hope you will join us.
