Expanding Your Networks in San Francisco

Posted By Sherri Halloran, Wednesday, December 19, 2018
With the rapidly approaching New Year comes the annual JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco that many of you will attend with hopes of making the right connections to grow your business. Whether you’re seeking to meet new investors, customers, or potential partners we are all strengthened through sharing our networks. It was with this in mind that in 2014 we began hosting the Virginia Reception on the eve of the conference.

The Virginia reception has become one of the premier pre-conference receptions with over 200 investors, business development professionals and company executives enjoying the elegant atmosphere of the Velvet Room of the Clift Hotel, just steps away from Union Square. Members are invited and encouraged to invite their investor partners in an effort to showcase the breadth of the Virginia life science community. If you’re a member headed to San Francisco and didn’t receive an invitation to this exclusive reception, please contact us.

Members are also encouraged to make use of our complimentary meeting space during the week. We have two semi-private and one private meeting room. Snacks and beverages are provided throughout the day to ensure that your guests feel welcomed. The space is available on a first come, first served basis through a user-friendly online booking system. Meetings can be booked or rescheduled right from your phone in advance, or on the fly as you make new contacts.

Learn more about all of the members benefits associated with this effort.

None of this would be possible without the gracious support of our many sponsors. Please take a moment to thank the following organizations: Virginia Beach Economic Development, Falls River Group, Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, Embody, HemoShear Therapeutics, Epidarex Capital, Ceres Nanosciences, Virginia Catalyst, Cherry Bekaert, Cavion, Brainbox Solutions, Kaleo, Greenburg Traurig, Pilot Health Advisors, Holland & Knight, Inova Strategic Investments, Loudoun County Economic Development, and UVA Licensing and Ventures Group.
