International biotechnology conference seeks to connect national start-ups with US market

Sharing in-depth experiences on the global level and, in particular, building links with the US market, were the main objectives of the recent International Innovation and Biotechnology Conference: Connecting with the World. The event, organized by AmCham Chile and Imagen de Chile, was held as part of a program supported by Corfo aimed at promoting and strengthening the national innovation and biotechnology ecosystem.

The conference also formed part of the Look North scheme, a business strategy driven by AmCham Chile that focuses on boosting Chilean investment in the United States.

The meeting included statements from one of the founding members of Whitehead Institute, Harvey Lodish, and the founder and CEO of Cambridge Innovation Center, Timothy Rowe, who discussed his experience in promoting collaboration opportunities between the innovation community and the business sector.

The conference, sponsored by MSD, also included a discussion panel on notable Chilean start-ups that have achieved international success in the biotechnology field.
