More than 200 attendees joined us at 230 FIFTH, the largest outdoor Rooftop Garden in NYC, to meet—and share a few cocktails—with this year’s ELITE 100. The celebration, sponsored by Calcium, provided the opportunity for attendees to engage with some of the industry’s brightest minds from top up-and-comers to successful veterans. That includes this year’s Uber ELITE winner, Anita Goel, MD, PhD, CEO and Founder of Nanobiosym Diagnostics, who also delivered a fascinating keynote address that included a demo version of her company’s Gene-RADAR device, which is used to identify HIV, Ebola, and a range of serious diseases in minutes. Once again, this proved to be one of the industry’s hottest parties and best networking opportunities.
Gil Bashe of Finn Partners introduced the crowd to this year’s Uber ELITE winner.

Before heading to the roof, many attendees enjoyed 230 FIFTH’s wonderful indoor décor. The group from Calcium wasn’t just a sponsor, they also needed to celebrate for their ELITE-winning colleague, Garth McCallum-Keeler, who couldn’t make it.
