When it comes to biotech, Colorado Springs tends to be overshadowed by the bigger life-sciences industry clusters up the road in Denver and Boulder. But the Springs’ biotech industry appears to be building momentum.
This week a new chapter of the Colorado Bioscience Association (CBSA) launched in Colorado Springs, with support from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) and the Colorado Springs Economic Development Corp. (EDC).
The group, which met for the first time Wednesday, aims to provide support to existing bioscience companies, help recruit new ones and work with UCCS to commercialize new technologies.
“With over 25 bioscience companies already here and more in the pipeline, we will continue to invest in this industry,” says EDC CEO Mike Kazmierski. “We see it as a vital part of our future.”
