A message from Danny Robinson, CEO, BCIC
Vancouverites, our city will soon host more than 800 international life science delegates at the 9th annual BioPartnering North America conference. BC has one of the fastest growing life sciences communities in Canada and we are proud to welcome leaders and potential investors from over 30 countries as they network with local life sciences companies and explore opportunities for business partnerships.
As part of BCIC’s commitment to make BC the best place to start and grow technology companies, we are proud to be supporting the participation of the following six companies at BioPartnering North America: Augurex Life Science Corps, enGene Inc., GenomeDX Bioscience Inc., Sirius Genomics, Valocor Therapeutics Inc. and viDA Therapeutics. These companies will each have the opportunity to showcase their technology and pitch their needs to potential investors and partners…and perhaps move their business to the next level.
Good luck to all six companies and welcome to our international guests!
