Convergence fosters real debate and discussion among an audience that is every bit as high-level as the speakers. It provides an opportunity for attendees to make important new contacts, do business, explore important new directions in research, delve deeply into what it takes to maintain competitive advantage in a fast-changing world, and leave feeling recharged.

Mission - Bring together high-level life sciences players from around the Northeast to discuss and debate the most pressing topics of interest to the industry - topics like forging strong corporate partnerships; attracting funding from private and public sources; building successful research organizations; streamlining product development and approval; understanding the coming convergence of biology, software, and medical devices; and staying ahead of regulatory changes.

What Makes It Different - This is an event that will deliver a rapid-fire stream of ideas, advice, lessons-learned, and important insights - not a parade of 15-minute company presentations. It's not an investor's conference, and it's not an event for people looking for jobs - it's a gathering designed for people who make news and build companies in the life sciences field.

Audience - Biotech executives and company founders; heads of R&D; chief business officers; venture capitalists; investment bankers; and partnership execs at pharmaceutical companies.
