Sponsorship Opportunities

The BioNorthTX industry association is proud to host the inaugural Annual iC3 Life Science Summit at the Marriott Las Colinas Hotel on September 30, 2015.  We are pleased to partner with our Board of Directors, business leaders and life science experts to host this annual gathering of all stakeholders to meet and discuss strategic issues such as the state of the industry (national, state and regional), the focus and developments at our local research institutions, lessons from successful life science companies and finance strategies from entrepreneurs and investors.

This event will attract emerging companies, established life science, biopharma, pharma, and healthcare companies, academic research institutions, innovators, and leaders.  Also attending will be business development executives, vendor partners, investors, and talent interested in connecting for potential new positions in the area.

The goal of this year’s inaugural Annual iC3 Life Science Summit on September 30th is three-fold.  We first want to illuminate the North Texas region’s assets including academic research, companies, and resources available to make North Texas a leading life science market.  Secondly, we want to bring together all of the parties involved in the success of life science companies and commercialization of life science products in North Texas.  And thirdly, we want to educate the industry at large about the potential for North Texas to become a leading cluster in bioscience innovation and a sought after place to work and live.
