Alley Chats

Build your network through LifeScience Alley.

Alley Chats are members-only networking and resource building events.  The mission of Alley Chats is to engage the life science community to share resources, discuss topics of mutual interest, and improve the status of the industry.  Alley Chats events are not for the marketing of products and services (other than those of event sponsors); they are an opportunity for knowledge-bridging and serve as a way for members to network with their colleagues in the life science industry.

Alley Chats events are held quarterly.  The format is a reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and refreshments at a member headquarters or facility.  Attendance for an Alley Chats event is typically around 150 individuals.

To view upcoming Alley Chats networking events or to register for an upcoming Alley Chats networking event, please see the Event CalendarRegistration typically opens 4-8 weeks prior to the event.

Note about 2014 Alley Chats: This year we will be focusing our Alley Chats on the biotech and pharmaceutical community. The mission of BioPharma Alley Chats is to engage the biotech and pharmaceutical community to share resources, discuss topics of mutual interest, and improve the status of the industry. This event is specifically for individuals from the biotech and pharmaceutical organizations, a rapidly growing part of Minnesota's LifeScience Alley.
