Connect with Alec Lee, CEO & Co-Founder of Endless West
About this event
The SBN is pleased to announce the next event of the Connect with Biotech and Life Sciences Professional Series. We are excited to be joined by UBC and Harvard Alum, Alec Lee.
Alec Lee is the Co-Founder & CEO of Endless West, a food technology company using innovative methods to create wines and spirits at the molecular level. After leaving Harvard Business School to pursue a new startup venture, Alec teamed up with fellow scientist, Mardonn Chua, to form Endless West. Their first product, Glyph, is the first whiskey ever to be made note by note, using flavour and aroma molecules extracted from more efficient sources in nature. Unlike conventional whiskeys, Glyph is made without any barrel aging, which means significantly less water, land and CO2 is used in its production process. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Alec studied science & biotechnology at the University of British Columbia and currently resides in San Francisco, California with his wife and daughter.
Through this opportunity, students can expect to:
• Learn about careers in the life sciences and biotech industry
• Engage with Alec Lee
• Q&A with Alec Lee
Due to the nature of the event, there will be limited attendance. Those that are unable to secure a spot will be put on a waitlist.
