About

The Biotech CEO Summit in Napa is a private meeting for biotech industry leaders where they can talk candidly with other CEOs about the opportunities and challenges facing their organizations and the biotech industry as a whole. The fully-interactive forum uses case studies to launch discussions about the kind of issues only biotech CEOs confront.

This invitation only event is designed for CEOs of recently public or late stage private companies who are leading their organizations through the rapidly evolving biotech landscape. The Biotech CEO Summit is an opportunity to engage with and influence the next wave of biotechnology leadership.

Going into their third year, Demy-Colton’s Biotech CEO Summits are closed door, think tank-style meetings that bring together biotech industry leaders who are united by the common goal of driving responsible growth and innovation while reaping the rewards of biotech’s new golden age.

The fully interactive gatherings are designed to engage CEOs and other industry leaders in a series of dialogues that address the challenges of navigating the rapidly evolving biotech landscape. The goal of the event is to cooperatively address the challenge of finding the balance between vision and pragmatism in a critical industry that is coming of age.

To date, Biotech CEO Summits have been held in Napa in 2015 and 2016, and Co. Wicklow, Ireland in 2016. In 2017, the CEO Summits are returning to Napa and Co. Wicklow, Ireland.
