The Northwest NeuroNeighborhood is dedicated to fostering the development of our emerging Neuro-related cluster in the Northwest.
Our first meeting was on August 22, 2012, which was a gathering of local neuroindustry executives to share ideas about the breadth of local activity in neuro- science, biotech, devices, finance, medicine, law, and advocacy. That first meeting led to a regional membership directory, several follow up Steering Committee Meetings, recruitment of sponsors and a Board of Directors, and work on the Mission and Vision as follows.
Mission: Promote the Growth of Neuro Science and Industry in the Pacific Northwest
Vision: A Globally Recognized, Capital Efficient NeuroIndustry Cluster
Our members are enthusiastic for the NW NeuroNeighborhood because they recognize:
- Pacific Northwest’s neuro institutions already have a worldwide presence
- Our culture of cooperative competition is a special strength for efficient growth
- Opportunity for innovation is abundant in the neuro space
