I am pleased to announce that a beta version of BIoCrowd is ready. BioCrowd is a social network for life sciences students and professionals that was created by Cliff Mintz of BioJobBlog and me.
Cliff and I started BioCrowd because we both perceived a need for undergraduate and graduate students to more effectively network with established scientists and life sciences professionals to further advance their careers or find jobs. We designed BioCrowd to have the social interactivity of Facebook and the business connectivity of LinkedIn.
We are looking for a few brave women and men who want to help to beta-test BioCrowd before we launch. If you are interested, please visit us at biocrowd.com and sign up. For those of you who don’t want to participate for the moment, but want to keep abreast of our progress, you may follow us on Twitter and FriendFeed.
