Emerging Companies Forum

As a key source of highly trained workers and the research that fuels innovation, higher education is critical to North Carolina's economic future. NCBIO has been an important advocate for expanded educational and research opportunities for our students, just as it has strongly supported new opportunities for the state's bioscience companies.

Start-up bioscience companies in North Carolina need support including seed and venture capital, information on technology transfer, assistance with advocacy issues and a network to share ideas. The Emerging Companies Forum provides a platform for NCBIO’s small-company members to discuss issues affecting emerging companies, including access to capital, availability of wet laboratory facilities, stock option accounting, technology transfer, and a host of other issues. The Emerging Companies Forum meetings are held three times yearly.
