Come for the people and programs. Stay for a beer. Leave with your next big breakthrough.

LaunchBio's Larger Than Life Science is a free event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for life science and healthcare innovators. Join us at LabCentral for an evening of unconventional conversation.

This month’s theme: Going Virtual, Building a Biotech Company from Startup to Scale

As companies grow, so does the need for talent, but where do you start? there a "right" time to hire, or does it make sense to stay virtual for extended periods of time? What does market analysis say is the going rate for new employees? 

Join our panelists to learn about running a virtual company, and what comes next.


PANEL | 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Life after Incubation: A Virtual Reality

What does it take to add new employees and continue to grow? There are many aspects to consider whether you are hiring your first employee, Chief Financial Officer, or a CRO for your company. Our panelists from Aldatu Bio, Eleftrofi, and Nocion will discuss their decision-making process on hiring new employees, and why they chose to go virtual, hire staff locally or both. Learn how they continue to build their teams and the adjustments needed when they left LabCentral and Tufts Launchpad. 

PANEL | 5:20pm - 6:00pm
Let the hiring begin: Finding the right employees

As life science startups transition from virtual to growth stage, the question arises: When is the right time to bring skill sets in-house? Our panelists will share the latest market conditions in the hunt for talent, including compensation packages, recruitment time, and who’s competing for the best and brightest leaders and team members. We’ll also get inside tips on building a great corporate culture that can grow with your company.

NETWORKING | 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Connect with your fellow bio-innovators over drinks and light refreshments.
