BayHelix presents unique opportunities to its members to achieve the mission of the group and accomplish the business and professional goals of its individual members. The breadth and depth of BayHelix’s membership base and its exclusivity are what differentiate us from other professional organizations with similar industry focus.
Networking Through Privileged Interactions
BayHelix facilitates networking with business leaders and professionals at leading life science firms in both the U.S. and China through the privileged interactions among the members and with the expanded contacts of its members. This creates an ideal forum to share business opportunities within the group. In particular, BayHelix is well positioned to bridge the collaboration and partnership across Pacific given the group members’ common bilingual and bicultural background.
Developing Leadership and Professional Skills
BayHelix is an organization of business leaders. We encourage and support each other to develop leadership and professional skills at both personal and group level. Our members are seasoned leaders across the entire value chain of life science industries including both corporations of various sizes to professional service firms supporting the industry. The diversity of our membership base catalyzes learning and sharing across different industry sectors and career paths. We want to cultivate an environment where our members can learning and benefit from other members’ success and setbacks. Furthermore, we strive to build lasting personal relationship and trust beyond typical business interactions. We believe that we can attract current and future Chinese business leaders in life science industries if we commit to our mission and continue to bring value to our members.
