Invitation is Open for Rose-Hulmanâ€™s Life Sciences Networking Event
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will once again be catering to Indianaâ€™s life sciences by hosting a FREE networking luncheon, schedule for Monday, May 3rd.
Weâ€™ve all heard the phrase, â€˜you have to spend money to make moneyâ€™, but in todayâ€™s economy, how do you take that risk? This yearâ€™s guest speaker is life science innovator, Jeff Hanthorn, Chief Operating Officer of NICO Corporation, who is living the entrepreneurial dream. Hanthorn and his partner Jim Pearson were both integral in the creation of Suros Surgical Systems, a medical device maker which sold to Massachusetts-based Hologic in 2006. Hanthorn and Pearson then co-founded the Indianapolis-based start-up NICO less than a year later.
At the May 3rd event, Hanthorn will share his personal story on the components of a successful start-up and his opinion on the future of Indianaâ€™s life science sector. Attendees will also enjoy a free lunch, and get the chance to network with others within the industry, as well as see how Rose-Hulman is educating students majoring in the life science fields.
This is reserved seating, so please respond via email to Kathy Kassissieh no later than April 30th if you are interesting in attending.
