San Diego’s ecosystem continues to reap the benefits of growing companies. We will have three new public biotechs soon - Ambryx, Codex DNA, and eFFECTOR. The first two filing for IPOs and the latter going public through a SPAC. Driving to new liquidity is great for the region, especially in returning capital and getting public company experience for our talent. Congrats teams!

We are also gearing up to discuss and celebrate our region’s cybersecurity prowess. Join us at next week’s virtual Cybersecurity Night. The panel is 🔥. We will be hosting small topic-based discussion rooms for you to join as well. We’re excited to create a new way of networking in the San Diego tech community. See you on June 15!
