Overview:

You are invited to Vectors Capital’s inaugural Boston event! The BioInnovation X Climate Night is a chance to hear from industry insiders, connect with founders committed to reversing climate change through biological innovations, and meet the Vectors Angel network and members of the MIT-derived fund, The Engine. This an excellent opportunity to expand your network, learn about advances at the intersection of biotechnology and climate, and find your next deal.

Thank you to our sponsors at First Republic Bank for your support!

The BioInnovation X Climate Night is a follow-up event to our BioInnovation Challenge this past August and is a chance for angels, LPs, startups, members of the Vectors community, and The Engine community who are interested in bio-based solutions to climate challenges, to come together to meet each other, learn, and discuss. In addition to panel discussions on Food & Agriculture and Bio-Manufacturing, the live event is also an opportunity for us to recognize the winners of the BioInnovation Challenge and to hear pitches from startups from both Vectors and The Engine.
