About The Event

Boston Biotechnology Summit® is designed to foster innovative synergies between biotech and pharma companies, healthcare-focused cities and regional clusters, institutional, philanthropic and strategic investors. The Summit team is passionate about bringing the professionals together to spark new ideas and projects leading to improvement of patients’ health and well-being, globally. 

The Summit in 3 years

The central theme of the first edition in 2017 was an introduction to the biotechnology ecosystems in Boston and Paris, which were also highlighted in terms of innovation and leadership.

The Summit®’s framework for its 2018 edition was “from the promise of raising capital to the reality of clinical trials” and featured speakers from the academic, biotech, investor, legal/regulatory and pharma worlds. A CEO “pitching session” was introduced.

The objective of the third Summit in 2019 held at The Wistar Institute was to further ensure that it could offer an efficient and cost-effective forum which will add value for the companies taking part. To achieve this, the organizers’ aim was to maintain a rich content and a “human size” and to strategically expand this US-based Summit® to broader European participation. An International Program Committee was also set up.

The 4th Boston Biotechnology Virtual Summit is held in a collaboration with MassBioHub Conference & Business Center, Cambridge MA
