BioBreak is a members-only relationship building community intended to foster a stronger regional environment for executives in the life sciences and investors.
Overview of BioBreak
BioBreak is a members-only network with the core mission of bringing the best of the executive life science and investor community together to share knowledge and build relationships. These decision-makers come from a diverse cross-section of functions and backgrounds.
BioBreak brings these leaders together at exclusive events that include informal networking and affinity group events which provide interactive forums for discussion and exploration of challenges faced in specific leadership roles. At BioBreak events, members can establish relationships, find new business partners, and share best practices.
Now in its 16th year, BioBreak continues to reinvent and reimagine its format to keep the community connected. This includes hosting in-person and virtual events, allowing our membership to no longer be limited by the geographical BioBreak regions, and the founding of affinity group networking to unpack today’s industry challenges:
- Boost by BioBreak – female executive group
- CBO Forum
- CEO Forum
- CFO Forum
BioBreak currently has over 4,000 members in major life science hubs around the US and Europe. The large, diverse, and passionate membership base drives the broader community to connect with its life science constituents. BioBreak always adheres to its membership criterion, which is key to the success of the exclusive events.
If you are not located in a primary region of BioBreak, allowing you to attend in-person events, you may select the “Global BioBreak” region on your membership application and attend our virtual events.
Membership is free for eligible individuals. Attending events also comes at no cost to our members.
Founding and History
The BioBreak Organization was founded in the summer of 2006 in Philadelphia by Geoff Meyerson and Patrick Lee when they identified the need for a content-free networking opportunity for senior executives. When attending other industry events they realized that most attendees were service providers who aggressively pursued the few industry participants. Requiring all service providers to sponsor the organization to attend and maintaining strict membership criteria maintain the value of the events for the attendees.
Board of Directors
The organization is led by a board of executives who help organize the events in each region.
- Geoff Meyerson, President and Treasurer
- Martin Lehr, Secretary
- Nick DeLong, Webmaster
