The Bench to Bedside Initiative (BBI), Hacking Health NYC and our partner healthcare organizations bring you the "Commercializing Life Science - Business Matchmaking" event to gather a diverse group of people from academic research, technology, healthcare/medicine and the business communities to address innovation in healthcare.
What to Expect:
The purpose of the event is to form successful teams—comprised of specialists in business, legal, technology and medical research—who will work with patented life science technologies by BBI members. Through this event, you will have the ability to work on a team to develop a business plan, and potentially have access to these technologies from medical universities that BBI unites (see details in "About BBI" section). Ultimately, these teams will form successful business enterprises around these technologies to solve some of the most pressing matters in healthcare.
During the event you'll hear from 4 different speakers who will present and lead discussions about their respectful areas: 3D printing, big data, medical devices and clinical decision making in today's healthcare market. You'll meet key decision makers from Sols, Mana Health, Audicus, and Harandi Health and Longevity. These speakers will not only share their expertise in market dynamics and opportunities but will also facilitate productive team up session.
BBI builds teams around patented technologies at Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University. It began as a graduate student club in 2010 and has resulted in the creation of several seed-funded life sciences startups. Today it unites scientists from these medical universities and professionals in NYC interested in entrepreneurship and/or venture capital in the life sciences. BBI's mission is to provide scientists in the community with the tools needed to translate their ideas into commercial products that will benefit patients.
