As autumn kicks off, we’re getting ready for a productive season to wrap up the last few months of the year. Fall into civic tech and innovation with these not-to-miss events this week:
1) Bringing Science to the Art of Wound Healing
Monday, September 21, 6pm — 8pm
Cambridge Innovation Center, 5th Floor, Havana Room | One Broadway | Cambridge
Twitter: @cicnow | @phayre
Join a discussion with Paul Hayre, Founder of Sano. Sano is pioneering a disposable, low cost, point-of-care diagnostic platform focused on chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers. Sano’s device measures wound biochemistry to personalize treatment, promote faster healing, and reduce treatment costs.
Paul launched Sano after watching how his father’s chronic pressure ulcer was treated day in and day out: simple dressing changes, never healing. That protocol is largely the standard of care in the US today. His goal is to give clinicians visibility into wound biochemistry to determine effective treatments.
Refreshments provided by Helbling (6pm-8pm). Afterparty at Firebrand Saints.
2) #OFFCAMPUS — Order Up: Lessons Learned From A Food Truck Startup
Tuesday, September 22, 6:30pm — 8:30pm
GA Boston | 51 Melcher Street | Boston
Ever dream of starting your own food truck? Wonder what it’s like behind the wheel? Curious to hear about how they prepare all that delicious food in such a small space? Join Branchfood and General Assembly for an in-depth exploration of the food truck economy.
On this panel we’ll hear successful food truck entrepreneurs, and the local organizations who support them, talk about the Boston economy, how they got to where they are now, and what you should know before starting your own.
This September, skip the classroom and get #OFFCAMPUS with General Assembly. Through this curated series of events, workshops and panels you’ll learn the hands-on, practical skills you need to pursue work, and passion projects, you love from top, local practitioners.
3) Out of the Lab and into the Newsroom
Thursday, September 24, 8:30am — 10:30am
Microsoft | 255 Main Street | Cambridge
You’ve got your cutting-edge technology, you’ve raised money, and your company is making great headway on the R&D front. You’re ready to bring your company out of stealth mode and into the limelight, but what’s the next step? Media is a critical venue to communicate with investors, new hires, and other important stakeholders. At this event, you’ll connect with a panel of veteran life sciences reporters and communicators to explore how to take your story out of the laboratory and into the headlines.
