The BiohackingCongress brings together groups of people who otherwise wouldn't meet and helps to overcome boundaries between health, business, and science.

Kaspars Vendelis
Co-Founder, Biohacking.lv

 

BiohackingCongress in London gathered all the European most influential biohackers, experts, and leaders in one place. To share ideas, insights, and trends. The event was valuable for its speakers’ content. But almost underappreciated is the communications and networking part in non-formal conversations during the breaks. So many valuable topics and themes were discussed before and after the official part. Two thumbs up!

I know the team from Biohacking Congress for a long time; they are top-level professionals with tons of experience, connections, and lots of energy to provide superior service to their clients. They are particularly strong in helping companies in their Business Development activities in the USA and have a very strong network of investors here.
