Free for BioAustin members and employees of companies that are members of BioAustin.

Why are we charging non-members to attend BioBash?
Since BioAustin took over BioBash in 2013, attendance has soared from about 150 attendees per event to over 350.  While we’re thrilled that BioBashes have gotten so popular, the price has increased too.  The cost for the last few BioBash events have exceeded the money we receive from our event sponsors by about $5000 per event.

We are an all-volunteer, virtual nonprofit. We have intentionally kept our member dues low so that everyone can participate.  The current cost for an annual individual membership is $25 (increasing to $35 July 1).  Our member dues for life science companies range from $250 to $1000, depending on company size.  By comparison, MassBio member dues range from $1800 to $29,300; the life science company member dues for the California Life Sciences Association, formerly BayBio (San Francisco Bay area), range from $3000 to $25000.

While we feel it is important to keep our dues as low as possible, we need to pay our bills. We also think that BioBashes and the other events we provide for the central Texas life science community offer great networking and educational opportunities.

If you know of a company or organization that would like to be a BioBash sponsor, please let us know!
