How may we help you?

As an organization funded by your state tax dollars, NCBiotech has a mission of job creation through service to the life science community. 

In addition to our funding programs, the NCBiotech staff has many other ways to help. Here are some examples I recently sent to a consultant wanting to know how to help his client, a biotech support company that had recently relocated to North Carolina. 

NCBiotech has so much to offer, our content-rich website can leave a newcomer wondering which direction to turn. When this consultant’s inquiry found its way to my phone, I tailored some of my advice to his specific inquiry. But here are some of the more general ways I showed him that NCBiotech may be able to help his client – and, by extension, you – in the search for resources:

  1. Consider a listing in our Company Directory. All North Carolina life science companies, including those that provide services to support the bioscience industry, are listed free. But there are also options for sponsored listings that can include additional information to showcase products and services. Contact library@ncbiotech.org if you are interested.
     

  2. In addition, our library offers many services and resources helpful to small companies, including market research reports, databases and even full-text scientific literature access at reduced costs. For more info see http://www.ncbiotech.org/resource-library/library-services/consortium
     
  3. Companies wanting to participate at the international BIO conference in San Diego (June 23-26 2014), can save money and make a big impact by joining with the Center to sponsor a space in the North Carolina Pavilion. For sponsorship information see here: http://www.ncbiotech.org/BIO2014 

     

  4. Depending on the type of technology, one of our Exchange Group programs may have members interested in learning about a company’s products. Exchange Group events are for intellectual discussions, partnership formation and collaborative exploration with academia, government and industry participants. We can help guide you to one of our 22 groups that may make your efforts worthwhile: http://www.ncbiotech.org/exchange-groups
  5. We can inform you about other industry organizations that can be of benefit to you such as CED, an entrepreneurial support organization founded to stimulate the creation and growth of high-impact companies in the greater Research Triangle area of North Carolina www.cednc.org, or North Carolina Biosciences Organization (NCBIO), the trade association for North Carolina’s life science community http://ncbioscience.net/default.aspx.
     
  6. The above two organizations, along with NCBiotech, sponsor an annual Biotech conference in Raleigh; the next one will be held Feb 26-27, 2014.  You may wish to sponsor or attend. This year’s theme is Healthcare in 2020. Here is the link for additional information http://www.cednc.org/?page=lifesciencereg

This is just a sampling of some of the ways we can help you. You never know unless you scan our website or contact us. Really, when it comes down to it, whether it’s a relocating company, a researcher seeking grant funds, or a start-up seeking capital, NCBiotech is all about connecting biotech-related inquiries to resources that can help.

Full disclosure: we’ve evolved every one of these links to support our fundamental mission, which is creating life science jobs in North Carolina.
