Nominations are now open for the Buzz of BIO at the 2015 BIO Investor Forum. The Buzz of BIO contest recognizes highly innovative companies in the biotech sector and helps position these companies to develop strategic partnerships within the industry. Ten biotechs will be nominated in each of two categories – Early Stage Entrepreneurs and Late Stage Leaders. Winners will then be chosen via online vote from August 24-28.
The contest is an excellent opportunity for early-stage companies looking for their next financing round or late-stage private companies hoping to make the connections needed to take their product to the next phase.
During the Buzz of BIO contest, industry peers will be voting for companies they want to see and hear from at the BIO Investor Forum. One winner from each of the two categories will receive complimentary conference registration, a Company Presentation and promotion to industry leaders including a spotlight in BioCentury Extra.
Only 20 nominations will be accepted in total, and must be submitted by 5:00 pm ET, August 18. Winners will be announced September 9.
