An elevator pitch can really make you stand apart from the rest when you are on the job market, networking, attending a conference, or on the fly when you meet someone in public. Join Cerneos Group, Westchester Biotech Project, and Beyond the PhD this October to learn how to craft an elevator pitch demonstrating your research. Register to attend our virtual workshop on October 13th and meet with mentors in academia and industry. Then on October 20th, join us to present your elevator pitch in person at UConn Health.
Trainees and professionals in science and biotechnology are welcome to participate. These events are free.
