An afternoon at LaunchLabs will provide students with an opportunity to engage with member companies of the premier life sciences incubator in NYC, LaunchLabs, at the Alexandria Center for Life Sciences. Students will hear from the LaunchLabs’ entrepreneurs, experience the environment of a collaborative working environment, and tour the state-of-the-art wet lab. Hearing from some of the LaunchLabs members firsthand, many of whom are female, will introduce a career path that connects academic scientific research to commercialized life science technologies through entrepreneurship.

Students will meet and greet with the member companies, then will breakout into smaller groups to learn more about the entrepreneurs’ backgrounds and their companies, and will rotate to different tables to meet each company. The students will then tour the wet lab and enjoy a science-themed snack and soft drink reception.

Please complete the YWIB permission forms located here and bring to the event.
