The Bioeconomy Hub

Connect with Our Network of Synthetic Biology Leaders and Transform Your Business With Exclusive Opportunities

When the right people are in your network, the possibilities are endless. The Bioeconomy Hub is a one-of-its-kind platform that gives you instant access to a world-class network of synthetic biologists who are focused on the same goal as you: Engineering a better world with biology. You’ll get personalized, focused connection recommendations and premium content that will elevate your search for investors, jobs, and revolutionary technologies.

Revolutions Don’t Start Overnight

Building the future with biology can’t happen in a vacuum. You need an inner circle of advocates, role models, trusted advisors, and specialists. They can help spark new ideas, get support and capital for your new ventures, and empower you to solve the world’s most challenging problems.

Every day the synthetic biology community grows bigger and bigger. It’s attracting new leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs with ideas that have the potential to fundamentally change the world we live in.

Our industry has great momentum, however, keeping track of new faces, their expertise, and what they do takes time and constant attention. Most digital groups and community building sites aren’t tailored to bioengineering. That can make it difficult to efficiently identify relevant content, discover the people you can form mutually-beneficial connections with, and raise awareness about your transformative ideas.

The Bioeconomy Hub platform changes all that.

A Leaps Talk with Tristan Harris on shaping human progress through biology
Tristan Harris is a design ethicist and critic of how the web is downgrading humanity. In this fireside chat with SynBioBeta founder John Cumbers, Harris will explore how the synthetic biology community ought to think about this digital moment in history. What happens when the technology of social media meets the biology of our minds? How does this color the public conversation around tackling global challenges like hunger, genetic disease, and climate change? Learn how tech and biology work for and against us in building a better world with biology.

Technology, culture, and forging audacious aims for our future

A Leaps Talk with George Church, DA Wallach & Kira Peikoff
In a time of COVID, climate-induced wildfires, and political division, how do we keep researchers and the public united to tackle humanity’s most pressing problems?? This conversation brings together a synthetic biology pioneer, an iconoclastic artist/entrepreneur, and a science journalist/bioethicist to explore the technological and cultural trends shaping biotechnology today. We’ll explore the most promising biotech tools for future-proofing humanity, how entrepreneurs and start-ups are catalyzing progress, and our obligations to one another in a shared vision for our biological future.
