Frederick Innovative Technology Center, Inc. (FITCI), a business incubator and accelerator dedicated to nourishing a range of emerging bio and technology start-ups, is hosting “Celebration Friday” (a festive gathering highlighting client success stories) and BioBeers on April 21, 2017. This double event will start with libations and networking at 3:30 p.m. at FITCI’s 4539 Metropolitan Court location, off English Muffin Way. There is a raffle and short program at 4:00, with brief statements by Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner and Frederick City Mayor Randy McClement. BioBeers social and games begin at 4:30. Attendees will also get a sneak peek at details of FITCI’s second business incubator/accelerator opening soon in downtown Frederick.
Both events are free and open to the public, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Verve Partnership: Douron & Hon. The company recently sponsored furnishings for FITCI’s expanded training and conference center, which will match planned décor at the new downtown location. Several lucky attendees will win a Douron & Hon backpack. (Supplies limited)
