(Page 2 of 2)
in each of the cities we cover. Our rapidly growing group of San Diego Xconomists (listed here) includes Larry Smarr, founding director of Calit2, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology; Larry Bock, a leader in commercializing nanotechnology and the founder and organizer of the San Diego Science Festival; Fran Berman, director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center; Fred “Rusty” Gage and Ron Evans of the Salk Institute; Evan Snyder at the Burnham Institute for Medical Research; pioneering local venture capitalists Drew Senyei and Ivor Royston, and more.
We are also extremely fortunate to be supported in San Diego by a group of visionary underwriters and partners. These include Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Biogen Idec, EMC (the new owner of Iomega), Enterprise Partners, the Science & Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the leading high-tech and life sciences trade organizations in the area: BIOCOM, CleanTECH San Diego, CommNexus, CONNECT, the San Diego Software Industry Council, and the San Diego Venture Group.
We’re extremely excited to come to San Diego, and have been thrilled by the enthusiasm with which we’ve been welcomed by the business and university innovators, executives, and administrators we’ve met over the course of preparing to add this important hub to our network. We really hope you like what Xconomy is doing too and, as always, welcome your comments and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
