Past Event – Holiday Celebration and API Manufacturing Discussion

Event Summary

With a successful 2017 behind us, BioForward took some time to celebrate with our members at our first member only holiday event! Over 100 members enjoyed an evening recognizing member accomplishments and a discussion on Wisconsin’s emerging biomanufacturing center of excellence. The evening included a networking reception, live music, business card raffles for Wisconsin goods, and a Child’s Play fundraiser that collected over $1000 for providing games to children in Wisconsin hospitals.
