BIO’s allied organization in South Carolina will be hosting their third annual conference later this month. SCBIO will be hosting the state’s top chief executive Gov. Nikki Haley as the keynote speaker, along with global biotech financier and analyst G. Steven Burrill.
“The Governor played such a critical role in recruiting Nephron and Spirit Pharmaceuticals to the state, her coming signals the significance of this sector, ” said Tom McLean, Chairman of SCBIO.
“We also want to show our appreciation for boosting private funding for the state’s entrepreneurs and start-ups through the tax credit for angel investors.”
The Face to Face SC Life Sciences conference is Thursday-Friday, Nov 14-15 in Charleston at the Mills House Hotel.
The Face to Face theme of the conference emphasizes the importance of coming together to collaborate and create competitive advantage, said Wayne Roper, SCBIO President.
The conference for the first time includes a JOB FAIR and Start-up Pitch Contest.
