BioBreak is a members-only relationship building community intended to foster a stronger regional environment for executives in the life sciences and investors.

About Us

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 15th year, BioBreak has reinvented and reimagined its format to keep the community connected. This includes the launch 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.  

BioBreak looks forward to hosting a full calendar of in-person events in 2022. 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
