These state affiliates provide BIO with “grass roots” support. As part of our partnership with the state affiliates, BIO makes the BIO Business Solutions® program available to their members. The members of participating state associations may also use the program at no additional charge, as the program is a benefit of their memberships.
Are these cost-savings programs only for life science companies?
While some of the individual BIO Business Solutions® programs are relevant to only life science companies, some of the programs are relevant and available to any company in any industry!
