Virginia Bio-Connect!

With $3.2 mil in funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia, Virginia Bio-Connect will be a multi-regional collaboration designed to increase connectivity and awareness of the existing programs, resources, and communities in the Commonwealth that support the life science industry. This project will further fill necessary commercialization gaps and foster partnerships within the state’s existing life science and entrepreneurial ecosystems.

We are creating a central location for the life science community to find relevant resources across the state, including commercialization and entrepreneurship programs; funding mechanisms; accelerators; job boards; internship programs; and core research equipment facilities.

Virginia Bio-Connect will provide the pathway for businesses to find the support, expertise, and workforce needed to grow and prosper in the Commonwealth of Virginia and increase Virginia’s attractiveness to out-of-state investors and relocating companies. More to come on this exciting endeavor!
