BIO sets up potential partners through speed meetings
Michal Preminger, executive director of Harvard University’s Office of Technology Development, has 70 meetings on her BIO International Convention schedule. Christine Menjoz of Sanofi is only meeting with new companies at BIO — just six or seven meetings a day. The sprawling conference features high-profile keynote addresses, dozens of industry panels, and hundreds of booths and pavilions in its exhibition hall. But the main event for many attendees are dozens and dozens of “partner meetings” with other companies and institutions.
