Life Science Washington – Organizational Background
Life Science Washington is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(6) trade association serving the life sciences industry in the state of Washington. Our mission is to support and grow Washington state life sciences through advocacy, collaboration and investment.
The life science industry encompasses any initiative aimed at improving the quality and standard of life. Its many industry sectors include biotechnology, medical devices, biopharmaceuticals, health IT/digital health, global health, bio-agriculture and bio-fuel. Our members include organizations engaged in, or supportive of, the research, development and commercialization of life science technologies. Life Science Washington is fully-funded through memberships, sponsorships, grants, and event registration fees.
In 2016, with support from the Life Sciences Discovery Fund, the organization launched a new initiative to enhance an ecosystem that encourages entrepreneurs to establish early stage life science ventures within WA State and to improve the success rate of these ventures in translating promising science and technology into commercial products. Ultimately, our vision is to create an ecosystem that accelerates the cycle of idea generation and concept validation, and boosts development of market relevant, impactful products and solutions for healthcare. In the immediate term, our focus is on addressing gaps and opportunities in the ecosystem by designing and implementing a sustainable, statewide system of entrepreneur start up and commercialization programs.
A major priority for the commercialization ecosystem is to provide early stage startups with the necessary tools to grow their business. One key aspect of supporting early stage entrepreneurs is providing access to educational content regarding best business practices for life science startups. Consequently, we will be hosting a variety of educational seminars/workshops and panel discussions aimed at fulfilling this need. To facilitate future access to this content, we will be recording these events, editing them to allow for the additional of introductory and concluding materials, and hosting them in a library of education videos on our website.
