Nominations are now open for the Buzz of BIO contest at the 2016 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.

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.
