We are thrilled to announce the return of our popular “Founders at Work” seminar series! Set to occur monthly, these seminars will alternate between our San Francisco and San Carlos locations. Each session features a distinguished current resident or alumnus from our community. These seminars provide an invaluable opportunity, especially for early-stage founders, to gain insights from those who’ve navigated the entrepreneurial journey successfully. It’s a chance to hear real-life stories, learn practical strategies, and understand the experiences that have shaped successful startups.

Upcoming Highlight:

Michael Becich

Heather Williams, PhD
VP of Clinical Genomics and Chief of Staff

Our upcoming Founders at Work Speaker features Michael Becich, CEO, and Heather Williams, COO and VP of Clinical Genomics at CacheDNA.

Cache DNA is on a mission to store the biomolecules of today in order to unlock the possibilities of tomorrow. After spinning out of MIT, their team graduated from the Illumina Accelerator and moved to MBC where they have been commercializing their core technology for preserving nucleic acids. February 29th is Rare Disease Day, and the Cache team is hoping to raise awareness about the gaps in clinical research that they are helping to address.


4 PM – 5 PM: Presentation and Q&A, to be followed by networking.
