All along the Front Range I can hear the sound of patents and articles-of-incorporation being filed, and new life science entities opening their doors. Larimer County is a concentrated region certainly a-buzz with such entrepreneurial activity. If you have not done so yet be certain to take a look at the Larimer Bioscience Cluster web site (here or http://larimerbioscience.org) to get a feel for the energy.
The mission of the Larimer Bioscience Cluster is to mobilize resources, coordinate actions and identify long-term partnerships to grow Larimer County into an important regional and national center for the biosciences. Kathy Kregel is doing a fantastic job aggregating vigor as the Director and deploying the LBC key strategies:
- Improve the availability of funding for bioscience companies, especially seed and early stage assistance.
- Enhance the success rate of small/startup bioscience companies, and support the needs of existing firms in the region.
- Support Colorado State University’s critical role in the statewide bioscience effort, including maximizing the commercialization of bioscience discoveries at the University.
