Boston, MA

The Nucleate Summit will be hosted in Boston, Massachusetts on August 29-30.

The two-day celebration will unify Nucleate’s worldwide community in person for the first time, connecting hundreds of volunteers, founders, and investors.

The Leadership Summit (Day 1) includes shared experiences that will strengthen bonds among Nucleate leadership, alumni, special guests, and sponsors. It will also invite participants to explore the city of Boston and its advanced biotech ecosystem. Here, the action will be off-stage: attendees will form deep connections with biotech leaders and Nucleate’s partners.

Day 1 registration is open only to Nucleate’s alumni, leadership, program participants, and select sponsors and featured guests (Note: This does not apply to Nucleate mentors/experts; please purchase a Day 2 ticket!)

The Community Summit (Day 2) includes premier networking opportunities, inspirational speakers, and the Activator Pitch Showcase, features recent winners from the 9 Nucleate regions. Many other teams from the Activator 2022 cohort will also attend; they are building on $9 million in funding raised in just the past few weeks.

Day 2 registration is open to all, and free for current academic trainees. The Community Summit will be hosted at Royale Boston from 1PM-10PM Eastern Time.
