This year we reflect on the passion, drive and risk-taking of an industry that consistently strives to accomplish things that others might deem impossible—an industry that goes BEYOND.
This theme represents the collective efforts and perseverance to develop solutions that go beyond our wildest dreams. We don’t just overcome obstacles with game-changing technologies and therapies, we embrace the challenge of solving the world’s most complex problems. No matter the barriers, failures, risks or stakes involved, scientists, patient advocates and researchers always go beyond.
California leads the world in life sciences innovation. The region offers unparalleled opportunities for research and development, education and business growth for not just the 3,400+ home-based life sciences companies - but for those all around the world looking for innovative partnerships and investment.
California's VC investment is unparalleled in the nation with over $7.6 billion in 2018. Its world-class life science revenues topped $178 billion in 2017. Committed individuals in the State are working tirelessly to develop sustainable agriculture, produce cleaner chemicals and discover new cures and treatments. In fact, California companies currently have 1,300+ potential therapies in the pipeline with the possibility to help patients facing a host of diseases today.
Join us next June as 17,000+ attendees from around the globe gather in San Diego for BIO 2020. We promise a shining week of unparalleled partnering, education and networking in the Golden State.
