One of Oregon Bio’s fundamental goals is to facilitate the growth of Oregon’s life sciences industry. Since our earliest days, Oregon Bio has worked to foster close ties with local, regional and state organizations focused on entrepreneurship and economic development. By working with these partners, we have helped create a more favorable business climate, recruited bioscience companies to Oregon and connected member companies with programs and support service offered by our partners.
To help expose our members to the breadth of the organization and programs, a few key partners are listed below. All of these organizations are waiting to serve you with resources that are well targeted and in most cases free for Oregon companies to use.
