Why New Jersey Should Be Your New Home For Pharma & Bio
In 1998 New Jersey had 80 biotechnology firms. Today there are over 350. The state is also home to 23 large pharmaceutical firms including Sanofi, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, and Novartis, as well as numerous medical device companies. If you look at the life science industry as a whole, the U.S. Department of Labor lists more than 1,000 firms located in the state. While many states would be happy with those numbers, many in New Jersey, from the governor’s office on down, will tell you they want more. At the 2013 Bio International Conference, New Jersey representatives made it clear they will continue to do their best to solidify the state’s role as the largest pharmaceutical hub in the nation and third in biotechnology.

How To Work A Trade Show – The BIO Way
Prior to the 2013 BIO International Convention, I received many emails, sometimes more than a dozen per day. Most were from exhibitors, wanting to schedule time to meet with me at the show. But I also received several from BIO International requesting that I take a look at their partnering system. I have to admit, I ignored those. I was scheduling all of my appointments on my iPad and figured that was good enough. After having breakfast with a couple of contacts at the show, I may rethink that decision before attending future shows.
Economic Freedom And Innovation – Why We Should All Be Worried
Are you concerned about the ranking of the United States in regard to the Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report? If not, you should be – and here’s why. Economic freedom is not just about politics or tariffs or regulations. It is about people. It is about being able to work where you want, when you want, trade the way you want, and live in a society where you are protected from others. It is also about the level of your health and your life expectancy.
