BayBio Expands Fellows Program To Meet Overwhelming Demand

BayBio will expand the criteria to its free one-year membership program, the BayBio Fellows, due to increasing demand by start-up companies.

The program provides current non-member bioscience companies of seven employees or fewer and $5 million or less in funding with a complimentary one-year membership in Northern California’s life science association. All members receive access to discounted rates on lab supplies and other services, best practice seminars, conferences, and networking events, to name only a few advantages of BayBio membership.

Entrepreneurship has fueled economic growth and innovation throughout the Bay Area’s history. In California’s innovation economy, we have seen first hand that entrepreneurship is key to driving job creation and economic development.

The BayBio Fellows Program is the first of two programs BayBio introduced this year to assist startup companies and entrepreneurs.

In February, the BioEntrepreneur Help Desk went online to connect startup companies with experts from the Bay Area’s service community. Our startups often need help with the business side of their companies and theBioEntrepreneur Help Desk provides pro bono support for business planning, legal and other auxiliary services.
