On 10th November, BEACON hosted the 3rd annual Homecoming Day for Karolinska Institutet Master’s of Bioentrepreneurship alumni. This was an extremely special year for Bioentrepreneurship alumni as the programme celebrated 10 years of graduating classes.
This year our theme was the ‘Future of Life Sciences’ beginning with a hackathon of new business ideas at Roche AB followed by our traditional homecoming event. UBE put our memory to the test by quizzing us on Bioentrepreneurship knowledge we learnt on the programme (trickier than you think!) followed by a riveting talk concerning the future of the industry with Roche Head of Policy & Communication, and Sjukvårds Podden host, Björn Arvidsson. Finally, we pitted classes against each other in a pinnacle Class vs Class competition- quickly learning just how competitive Bioentrepreneurs are! We rounded off the night with a lovely buffét dinner and a free bus to TAK terrass for a night on the town.
Thank you to our partners UBE, KI Alumni, and Roche AB for helping us create such a special event. If you’re a Bioentrepreneurship alumni, be sure to follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn to keep up with your classmates and receive updates from the BEACON team.
