Brace yourself: Refresh Meetups are invading Europe

Hello lovely readers,

Because we don’t want you to wait one year to get to the annual Refresh event, we decided to launch monthly after-work Meetups throughout Europe.

At each of them, you can expect:

  • 2 fireside chats with awesome speakers (one local, one not)
  • 50-100 attendees
  • Free entry
  • A new city in Europe every month
  • Free beers and snacks
  • the Refresh vibe 🙂

The first Meetup will be in Munich on April 3rd and will be co-organised with the IZB. Come listen to two of the best speakers in Europe, enjoy Munich beers (yes, the best in the world) and hang out with biotech enthusiasts.

Who will be the speakers? 

You must know them, they are everything we like at, they are the best of Europe, each of them Biotech leader in their countries and they’re great to listen to.
