Making NYC a Bio and Tech Mecca: LES NYC Chapter Meeting

Thursday, September 13, 2012 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM | Venable, LLP 1270 6th Avenue, 51st Street New York, NY 10022

No one can deny New York City's renown in the global financial sector, its prestigious universities, human talent, and the number of fledgling companies trying to make it in the Big Apple. And, Mayor Bloomberg recently outlined a road map to make NYC the nation's leading digital city, to promote its tech industry, and to turn the City into 'Silicon Alley'. Combine that with the US Headquarters of 6 top Big Pharma organizations, not counting generic and medical device powerhouses in the Metro area, and you have a wealth of science, development, and marketing muscle.

So why hasn't New York already become the Biotech and Technology Hub of the nation and what will it take to get there?

Come to hear the brightest heads in the industry, located right here in Manhattan, discuss their views on what's needed to make Metro New York the Bio and Technology Gold Standard for the world!
