Biocom Ribbon Cutting


Biocom creates valuable networks that accelerate member success in the Bay Area through a variety of programs, including specialized events, targeted conferences, expert committees, leadership dinners, industry-focused meetings, scientific roundtables, venture capital days, and member-to-member networking. To address the greatest challenge of the region, our lack of a geographical center, we hold these events throughout the greater Bay Area in a broad range of locations, times and venues. In addition to our events, Biocom also supports and partners on events held by local organizations, which can be viewed here.
