Thanks to everyone who made last night’s Xconomy event on Seattle’s 20-year outlook for life sciences such a big success. The house was packed at Seattle Biomedical Research Institute; we had a highly interactive conversation between the audience and a distinguished panel, and brief introductions to some of the most exciting life sciences startups in the Northwest. Quite a few people told me before and after that we should be doing more of these kind of events. Don’t worry, we will.
I spent some time at the very beginning thanking all the people and organizations that played key roles, and if you missed it before, here’s a refresher. The event sponsors were Fenwick & West, Cooley Godward Kronish, and Christensen O’ Connor Johnson Kindness. We also want to thank our underwriters—Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Fenwick & West, Cooley Godward Kronish, and the Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, as well as our venture members, Arch Venture Partners and Polaris Venture Partners. Thanks also to SBRI for serving as the event host, and to the Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association for serving as our event partner.
But one of the people I didn’t thank in front of the crowd was my lovely and talented wife, Tracy Cutchlow. She is not only gracious enough to put up with my entrepreneurial obsession, but also took some terrific photos that captured the energy of the room.
Here are some of the highlights that Tracy caught from the evening. (You can scroll down a bit in your browser to see the pictures, and you can click on them to enlarge and read some of the captions I jotted down):
