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 energizing the life sciences! The BioBreak Organization is a non-profit organization with the mission of bringing together senior executives from across the biotech, pharma, medtech, diagnostics, and venture capital industries. These decision-makers come from a diverse cross-section of functions and backgrounds. BioBreak brings these leaders together at informal events where members can establish relationships, find new business partners, and share best practices. Our members span six regions in the US (Boston, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Utah) and Europe. BioBreak currently has over 4,000 members and hosts events multiple times per year in each region (the number of events per year varies by region).
In 2020, BioBreak shifted from exclusively hosting in-person events to hosting a variety of virtual events inclusive of expert panel discussions and affinity group relationship building. BioBreak’s affinity groups include…
- Boost by BioBreak – female executive group
- CEO Forum
- CFO Forum
- CBO Forum
BioBreak looks forward to hosting in-person events when it is safe to do so. However virtual events are also here to stay! This hybrid of event formats allows our membership to no longer be limited by the geographical BioBreak regions.
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
