Bio2Business facilitates partnering and collaboration in biotech and pharmaceutical outsourcing. The company is located at the London BioScience Innovation Centre in the heart of London, UK. Established in 2004, we operate as an independent, privately run business.
Our services deliver new business partnerships and strengthen existing partnerships in outsourcing. We currently offer 3 service platforms to biotech, pharmaceutical and CRO communities as follows.
Biotech Outsourcing Strategies Events: Niche, highly targeted partnering events with an exclusive focus on outsourcing in discovery, CMC & clinical R&D. BOS Events bring together senior R&D executives with leading international service providers. See our BOS Events website for more details.
Business Intelligence solutions: In February 2010, Bio2Business will launch version 1 of CRO Tracker – our search engine specifically built and designed to support biotech and pharmaceutical outsourcing. Our CRO partners manage and update company profiles constructed to support your decision making with such data as audit history, track record, location, disease area expertise, chemistries expertise, biopharmaceutical service capabilities etc. Eligible biotech and pharmaceutical executives will be invited to access the service free of charge. Participating CROs are invited to post a basic profile free of charge. A number of premium services will then be made available, which participating CROs can opt into.
Targeted Business Development: Bio2Business is available to support networks of CROs to organise road shows and meetings in target markets which may be of interest to you. Please contact Bio2Business to discuss your requirements in further detail.
