How can New York finally come up with enough affordable lab space, you ask? Good question…

Harris & Harris Group managing director Misti Ushio provided some insight into the thinking of New York’s biotech venture capitalists. While there’s still a dearth of early-stage money for New York life sciences startups, Ushio thinks that’s on the “cusp” of changing.

Xconomy New York — 

On Monday, I recapped our latest Big Apple biotech event, “New York’s Life Science Disruptors.” Today I’ve come back with the slideshow look at the action.

In case you missed it, the event was a candid series of chats with key figures in different spectrums of New York biotech—startups, academics, established companies, and investors.

As you can see from the slideshow, the packed house was full of smiles—thanks again to all of our attendees, speakers, and moderators for a great time. Great thanks as well to our event host, Alexandria Real Estate Equities, and our sponsors: Eisner Amper, Halloran Consulting Group, and Kenyon. And thanks as well to Keith Spiro of Keith Spiro Photography for the photos (and to the weather for holding up). We’ll see you all again next year.

    This was a fantastic event jam-packed with eye-opening and interesting content! The speakers had me on the edge of my seat and I was absolutely blown away at some of the things I heard. I walked away from this with a true sense of what it’s really like behind-the-scenes in the ever-expanding New York bioscience industry.

    Great work putting this all together Xconomy (as always) and awesome pictures, Keith!
