Inside the Spring 2008 Issue: 

Thinking Downturn – or Up?
Alliance CEOs talk about the growing uncertainty with the economy and the strategies they are undertaking to offset the impact of the general economic trends in their own companies.  We interviewed about a half dozen of our members and found that some are actually finding opportunities in the current economic conditions.

Alliance Community Activities 
Recent Alliance CEO Roundtables provided CEOs the opportunity to discuss “building high-functioning executive teams” and issues specific to the life sciences industry.  Check out the photos of these events along with shots from recent keynote discussions at our regional Alliance meetings.

Creating – and Owning – a Category: A Case Study
Read how Alliance member Rich Bravman, CEO of Intelleflex, built his last company from a four-person team to a $1.7 billion dollar firm and what strategies Rich is using in his newest startup.

New Members
Check out our newest Alliance members who run companies in diverse industries such as clean energy, construction, healthcare, motorcycles, real estate services, software, telecommunications, and many others.

Upcoming Events
We've got some great events coming up, including CEO Roundtables, Dinners and Keynote discussions. Alliance members are invited to attend all Keynote discussions, even if their group is not meeting that day.
