Rich Bendis, President & CEO
BioHealth Innovation (Sponsor)

“Buzz serves an important role for the Maryland Biotech ecosystem in that it allows people to get together in a fun, relaxed environment. BioBuzz events are always a good time to meet new people and connect with old friends. Chris and Andy do a great job of connecting people and they have been a great resource to BHI”


Judy Costello, Deputy Director
BioMaryland Center (Sponsor)

“BioBuzz has been a great resource for companies and individuals seeking to make new contacts in the BioMaryland community. Chris, Andy and team have provided consistent, affordable casual networking opportunities in a welcoming atmosphere. The monthly events are a great place to catch up with colleagues and to introduce new attendees to potential partners, employers and clients.”


Jill Weiskof, Marketing Coordinator
CRB (Sponsor)

“BioBuzz has been a great asset and ally to CRB. As we worked to establish a new office in Rockville, BioBuzz served as an appreciated resource, helping us become engrained in the local market and connecting us with the burgeoning life sciences community in the area. After attending a few events and quickly realizing the incredible value that BioBuzz provides, CRB became a Double Helix sponsor, wishing to offer support (both financially and in thought leadership) to such a robust organization. As we move into our second season of sponsorship, we are proud to continue to be a part of a group that offers such meaningful opportunity to the life sciences community. From programs to promotion, Chris, Andy and the team have done a fantastic job making each event worthwhile for both attendees and sponsors, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come!”


Dan Gincel, Director
MSCRF Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) (Sponsor)

Dan-Gincel biotech“I have had the privilege to work with Chris on BioBuzz Rockville in late August to promote the 4th Annual Maryland Stem cell Research Symposium. I was very impressed by the event and the number of professional people it attracted from small and large life sciences companies all over Maryland. The BioBuzz event was a great success due to their pre-event organization and outreach. We had full turnout that led to record registration numbers to the Symposium we were promoting that day. The easy planning, organization, location, attendance and the Buzz made it worthwhile to sponsor again in future dates. I am proud to be called a BioBuzz Sponsor!”


Collins Jones, Biotechnology Professor
Montgomery College (Attendee)

Collins-Jones biotech“I have worked with Chris and Tech USA for the past several years and found him to be an outstanding business partner. He has assisted in the placement of many of our students at local Biotech companies. Chris also has a passion for giving back to the community as evidenced by his extensive involvement in promoting STEM education and in initiating BioBuzz. BioBuzz is, to my mind, the best networking event for Biotech Professionals in the Montgomery County Biotech arena. It is a casual way for all levels (entry level to CEO) of Biotech professionals to meet and interact. I always look forward to the next BioBuzz event, especially as the number of attendees continue to grow. Chris and Tech USA have become an important player in the Biotech world of Maryland and BioBuzz is one important aspect of his contribution. I highly recommend both Chris and BioBuzz!”


Scott Eldridge, Mid-Atlantic Territory Director
Biotech Vendor Services, Inc. (Attendee)

Scott-Eldridge biotech“The first BioBuzz event I attended was in Baltimore at the Bay Cafe. Since then I have watched the amazing evolution of this group under Chris’ direction. He does an excellent job of organizing meaningful events and seeks new means to bring us all together at great venues. The Contagion movie event held recently in both Baltimore and Rockville is a great example of this. I have made several new connections as a result of my participation in BioBuzz, and I look forward to many more events.”


Young Wang, Clinical Laboratory Manager
MacroGenics (Attendee)

Young-Wang biotech“The BioBuzz group is organized through the effort and time of Chris Frew and his partners at JHU MCC. They thoroughly understand the needs of the biotech companies from small start-up to large bio-pharma, as is evident by the events. I have been actively attending this unique and welcoming monthly happy hour and through this event I have re-connected with past coworkers and made new friends. It is so enjoyable. In addition to the events, there is often very interesting and engaging topics initiated in the LinkedIn BioBuzz group. BioBuzz has helped me and others, and is meeting its mission to build a stronger, more dynamic bioscience community in Maryland.”
