Annual Bioscience Colorado Magazine Profiles Leaders, Incubators
and Ecosystems

Colorado
BioScience Association
(CBSA) launched the new issue of its annual
magazine, Colorado Bioscience: Igniting the Future, during the
2018 BIO International Convention in Boston. The 2018-2019 magazine taps
female leaders for their perspectives on diversity in bioscience,
focuses on the collaborative culture created by Colorado's incubators
and accelerators, and examines the micro-ecosystem credited with
advancing orthopedics.

April Giles, President and CEO of CBSA, says:

"With investment results demonstrating the importance of female
leadership and the success of diverse teams, we asked senior women in
our sector for their insights. We talked about balancing boardrooms to
build stronger businesses, diversifying teams for more creative ideas
and providing better access to capital for start-ups with female
founders. We are also proud of the results driven by our up-and-coming
leaders, who are rising the ranks in their companies, taking risks and
cultivating amazing scientific success."

The new issue also measures the impact of the Colorado's Advanced
Industry Grant program. Since inception, the state has supported 344
grants totaling $52 million.

Jennifer Jones, Vice President of CBSA, says:

"Colorado's Advanced Industry Grant Program plays a critical role in the
success of our bioscience industry. To date, the program is credited
with creating 761 new jobs, 67 new companies and $521 million in
additional investment. This program encourages public-provide
partnerships and sends a strong message that Colorado supports
innovation industries."

An entire ecosystem of incubators, accelerators and integrators help
start-up and scale-up developers of software, hardware, medical devices
and pharmaceuticals bring their ideas to market more quickly. Some
include: Fitzsimons Innovation Community, Innosphere, BoomTown
HealthTech Accelerator and the soon-to-open Catalyst HTI. These
facilitators occupy universities, biotech parks, multi-floored
innovation centers, classrooms and boardrooms.

Additionally, the magazine focuses on a thriving micro-ecosystem of
orthopedics-focused companies. In addition to a concentration of spinal
and surgical solutions, other products and research coming out of the
state include biologics, hip, knee, and shoulder products, and
nonsurgical solutions to orthopedic disorders.

Comprehensive information on the state's life science industry,
including a complete directory of resources in Colorado, is available in Bioscience
Colorado 2018-2019: Bioscience Colorado Magazine: Igniting the Future
.
An electronic
version of the magazine
is available on the CBSA website.
