Fifth Annual Ag Biotech Entrepreneurial Showcase Set for May 10-11
By Barry Teater, NCBiotech Writer
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center scoured the planet for some of the world’s most innovative crop and animal-health companies to present at the fifth annual Ag Biotech Entrepreneurial Showcase this spring in Research Triangle Park.
The NCBiotech Library will be undergoing a renovation from Friday, July 1 through Tuesday, July 12. If you need to use our market reports or databases, library services will be available by appointment.
To set up an appointment between July 1 and July 12, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-549-8880. Please schedule 24 hours in advance.
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center and Library will be closed July 4 for Independence Day.
Seventy-one companies headquartered in 20 countries now have a presence in North Carolina, employing more than 17,000 people in the state, where they have made capital investments totaling well over $2.5 billion in the past five years alone.
If you’re a scientist or an introvert, one of the hardest things to do is talk about yourself.
Talking about it consistently enough to create a personal brand?
Anathema! (Bonus: you introverted scientists actually know what that means!)
Still, nearly 100 mostly introverted people, all scientists, turned out for the presentation, “Creating Your Personal Brand,” at Monday’s Jobs Network meeting. They listened as NC State’s John Hutchings told them just how important a personal brand is, not just to finding a job, but to their whole career.
NCBiotech President and CEO Doug Edgeton did some prognosticating at a luncheon briefing preceding Tuesday’s opening of the two-day 2016 CED Life Science Conference at the Raleigh Convention Center, presented each year by CED in partnership with NCBiotech and NCBio.
North Carolina voters will not only cast ballots for their favorite presidential candidate in the March 15 primary election. They will also decide a $2 billion state bond referendum that has long-term implications for North Carolina’s life science community.
