CABS Entrepreneurship Club Celebrates Thanksgiving Holiday

Old and new friends of CABS’ Entrepreneurship Club (“E-Club”) gathered on Sunday November 24, 2019 at Hanhai Lab’s Burlingame campus to celebrate the beginning of this year’s holiday season. As a popular annual event, the E-Club’s Thanksgiving Party attracts a wide range of interested individuals with diverse backgrounds and expertise, including seasoned entrepreneurs, investors, founders of startup companies, R&D scientists, consultants, and lawyers. This year’s event received generous sponsorship from Protheragen, Inc., an innovative drug research and development project incubator based in China and the United States.

Dr. Tian Yang, President of CABS, started the event with opening remarks.  Dr. Huijun Zhou, E-Club’s Program Chair, followed with an overview of the E-Club, highlighting signature E-Club events that offer opportunities for talents from the CABS community to connect and collaborate. Dr. Alex Zhang, CEO of Hanhai Lab, also provided an introduction of Hanhai Lab’s mission and resources across the globe. 

Event attendees mingled while enjoying delicious Chinese food and a roasted turkey. Each attendee delivered a 30-second pitch. Some talked about their professional aspirations and ventures, while others shared their personal interests and hobbies. New connections were made, opportunities were announced, and collaborations were called for—all with festivity in the air.


E-Club looks forward to keeping in touch with all members of the CABS community who share the inner calling of entrepreneurship. E-Club wishes you a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year.
