will discuss topics such as:

- How a person can move from an idea for a drug or medical device to an impactful product;
- Resources in NYC to assist life science entrepreneurs in starting companies; and

Panel discussion will be followed by Q&A and networking.

We hope to see you there.

    NYC has the potential to be the next Silicon Valley for start ups pertaining to the Life Science spectrum.

    I enjoyed hearing what the panelists and moderator had to say about biotech in NYC. It's encouraging to meet others in the sciences who are entrepreneurial and are looking for similar people to work with.

    Good presentation and interesting for me to see the other side as I am from marketing and writing about HIT and eHealth. I think bringing together the two sides has a lot of value in the compare and contrast--as well as in stimulating concepts that borrow from both. Can there be joint meetings between Health 2.0 NYC and NYC Bio perhaps once a year?

    I thought the panel discussion was very interesting. Each panel member had a different path, different personality, and different experiences but ultimately the same vision and objectives. I look forward to the next meeting.

    This is a great time for like minded enthusiasts to come together and form ventures.
