Surging growth of the biomedical industry in the East Bay - in Hayward in particular - and how companies can learn about opportunities and develop partnerships will be the focus of a free workshop from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, March 30 at Hayward City Hall, 777 B St. Signups can be made HERE.
The event is co-hosted by the Biomedical Manufacturing Network, the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Hayward.
Additional support comes from Baxter International; the Eden Area ROP; the STEM Institute at California State University, East Bay; The California Life Sciences Association; and Biocom. The latter two organizations are networks with hundreds of California life science industry leaders.
The event will address how the East Bay biomedical industry is growing and the integration of industries and resources unique to the region. Emerging technologies and opportunities for companies, the workforce, investors and educators will be discussed. Company representatives, inventors, investors, job-seekers, educators, students and policy makers are invited.
“Attendees will learn how they can benefit and play a role in the emergence of this industry,” said Gregory Theyel, director of the Biomedical Manufacturing Network. The organization offers manufacturing business assistance, technology transfer, and education to grow the biomedical industry cluster.
Speakers will include Dr. Theyel, Hayward Mayor Barbara Halliday and Alvin Jeong of Baxter International. Additional presenters will include a life sciences industry leader with Biocom.
