Frederick Innovative Technology Center, Inc. (FITCI)

Start the New Year off right with Startup Grind Frederick! Join us for an interesting and motivational Fireside Chat featuring Darryl Sampey, PhD. and Co-Founder, CEO & President of BioFactura, a leader in biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing. Darryl will share with us his unique journey from eight years as lead singer in a Rock & Roll band to his founding, developing and leading BioFactura. Specifically, he will focus on: • What his “rock” experience taught him in leading his company; • Challenges of establishing a business in a new market; • The necessities of persistence, flexibility and innovation for early stage survival; • Defining excellence in a highly competitive market; • Short- and long-term planning for success; • Developing a highly professional staff; and • Questions from participants. In the Startup Grind tradition, we'll begin the evening with fun, food and connecting with friends. You’ll meet with like-minded people to share what's on your mind regarding your business and inspire others with new ideas. Startup Grind is truly passionate about helping business founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make the startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable. Join Startup Grind Frederick and RSVP today! We look forward to seeing you there!
