Zurich/Vancouver January 2018
Biotechgate/Venture Valuation announce entering a partnership with Life Sciences British Columbia, a Canadian non-profit organization. The goal of the partnership is to develop and run a database comprised of the life science companies situated in the province of British Columbia. The database will be integrated into the Life Sciences BC website (lifesciencesbc.ca) and access will be provided free of charge to all website users. The database will list all members and sponsors of the organization
The British Columbia database will be a part of the global Biotechgate database that currently includes over 49,000 companies predominantly from the Biotech, Pharma, Medtech, and eHealth sectors. Additionally, it lists many relevant service providers, investors, media, and academic institutions, as well as non-profit and government organizations. The data is continuously updated by both the Biotechgate team and the listed companies themselves as all of the listed companies have access to the content of their profiles that allows them to contribute to the project. The database features advanced search options that will also be available in the local integration on the Life Science BC website.
Dr. Patrik Frei, CEO of Venture Valuation said: ‘We hope to gain a better insight into the vibrant life sciences industry in British Columbia thanks to the cooperation with our new partner’
Dr. Lesley Esford, President of Life Sciences BC said: ‘We are pleased to partner with Biotechgate and expect that this search service will support the needs of our broader community. When you are a small to medium size business, it can be difficult to connect with the best service providers; I’m certain adding the Biotechgate database, will be of overall benefit to our membership.’
