What people said about last year's event:
"The MALSI Day was more than a well-thought-out event-it was an introduction to the entire Life Sciences ecosystem in our region! As a newcomer to Boston, this was the single most-helpful conference I attended this year. Everyone you could ever hope to meet in this space was literally in the same room, sharing their viewpoints on opportunities and challenges, and calling on us all to participate and continue to build this amazing community."
"The conference was an excellent opportunity to network simultaneously with entrepreneurs, academics, and seasoned business leaders."
"...I met with 2 Harvard Post docs that were attending [who] had been mulling an idea for a new startup company but have been hesitant to really talk about it or move forward because they were not ready? [T]hey said that after this meeting that they felt much more confident to actually move forward and will start the process of kicking things off."
"It was fun and most informative. I met some great people, thinkers and continued to expand/deepen my knowledge on life science, innovation and tech transfer. You all did a fantastic job of putting this event together."
"I thought the event was personally very beneficial from a networking perspective since I was presenting a poster and able to speak with both investors and potential partners. ?the Harvard club is beautiful and a nice historical nod to Boston."
The 7th Massachusetts Life Sciences Innovation (MALSI) Day is the biggest day for life sciences startups and innovation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This is a high-energy, hands-on event which brings together scientific leaders and business experts to mingle with scientists, post-docs, professors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and venture capitalists.
Can you still be creative? In every lab in every research institution and company, researchers are told that they should be creative. But can researchers still be creative with the organizational and financial demands that are placed on research environments? Do corporations and academics still have the courage to allow their teams to be really creative? If you want to do interesting and exciting science can you still get the funding? How does business and finance leadership view creativity? Our speakers and panelists will discuss the current battle to create innovation friendly environments and its impact on entrepreneurs and young researchers finding jobs.
The conference will feature Keynotes, Panels, Innovators' Marketplace, Networking Reception with leading life sciences CEO's , and Poster Competition - great prizes for 3 best posters!
