Our Community Support

Working in the life sciences, we all have the power to make a positive impact on the world. At Locust Walk, we are committed to bringing positive and lasting change to the communities where we live and work through our skills, time, and resources.

Season of Giving Thanks Initiative

In 2020 we launched the Season of Giving Thanks initiative, and we are proud to now make this an annual tradition.

Each year, we thoughtfully select a list of life science-affiliated charitable organizations that are near and dear to the Locust Walk team’s hearts. And to show our appreciation and gratitude to our valued partners and friends we make a donation on their behalf to the charitable organization they designated.


BioBreak is a members-only network with the core mission of bringing the best of the executive life science and investor community together to share knowledge and build relationships. BioBreak’s exclusive events include informal networking and affinity group events which providing interactive forums for discussion and exploration of challenges faced in specific leadership roles. 

Long before Locust Walk, Geoff Myerson founded BioBreak in 2006 in Philadelphia, after identifying the need for content-free networking for senior executives in the industry. Once established, Locust Walk has played an instrumental role in strengthening BioBreak.
