Voting Is Now Open for the Buzz of BIO Contest!

April 2, 2012
Over the past few weeks, companies have been submitting nominations for this year's Buzz of BIO contest, and we've got a great list to debut! Now, it's up to you!

Voting for the contest is now open!

For those who are not familiar, this is a contest for the 2012 BIO International Convention. Companies from around the world submit their company for the chance to win free registration (which includes access to BIO's One-on-One Partnering™ System) and a free company presentation in the BIO Business Forum®. Then, industry leaders and executives are tasked with voting for the one they think is the most interesting and innovative. Last year's winners were Amrita Therapeutics, OPXBIO, and Agrisoma Biosciences.

This year, we have two great categories of companies: Pipelines of Promise, and Technologies of Tomorrow. You can vote for one company in each category. Plus, we'll randomly select one voter to win free Convention Registration for the event!

Vote Now!

"While I have attended the event for the last several years, the Buzz of BIO contest helped me think strategically about different aspects of the Convention and how they all come together to support Amrita’s business development and fundraising efforts... Win, lose or draw, the Buzz of BIO competition provides a wonderful opportunity for all competing companies to garner attention at the 2012 BIO International Convention"

- Susan Finston, CEO of Amrita Therapeutics & Last Year's Buzz Winner
