What is BioBuzz?
Since 2010 BioBuzz has been hosting the Maryland Biotech community at monthly networking events and social gatherings. What makes these events so unique is the causal, social atmosphere and the diverse group of biotech professionals who attend. There are no lectures or seminars and there’s no agenda or program; just fun and networking with your peers. BioBuzz is working to build a stronger community by bringing the biotech workforce out of the labs to culture relationships, instead of cells. By building a stronger social community we will enhance business and job opportunities for everyone in the region.
BioBuzz was founded in 2010 as a way to bring the unemployed workforce and potential biotech employers together during the height of the recession. Seeing the value of such events, Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery County Campus joined in 2011 as a BioBuzz partner and cohost for the Montgomery County, MD events.
Our mission at BioBuzz is to bring our region together by stimulating a more active bioscience workforce and a more dynamic bioscience industry throughout Maryland, DC, Virginia and beyond. BioBuzz is a social community group built for, and by the employees, students and businesses in the Bioscience industry. The BioBuzz events bring together professionals in a casual setting where attendees can network and build relationships, discuss current events, learn about local companies, start new partnerships and above all have a fun time. Biobuzz.net now offers our members a continuation of our community in an online forum, while retaining the casual, informative and social attributes that our events are known for.
Through BioBuzz we want to highlight the individuals and companies who make up our great community and offer them a platform to be noticed. Got an idea for an event or want to get involved? Send us a message and let us know how you too want to get involved and continue to spread the BioBuzz. In fact, each of the current contributors and sponsors were identified through relationships established from the BioBuzz events so we encourage everyone to contribute their ideas and energy to the group.
