Congratulations, Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Recipients

Colorado BioScience Association congratulates CBSA members awarded proof-of-concept and early-stage capital grants by Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). A total of 37 start ups from Colorado’s designated Advanced Industries will receive $7.7 million in funding.

Earlier this year, CBSA’s Policy + Advocacy team led the fight on behalf of Colorado’s Advanced Industries to preserve the Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program for the next fiscal year in the face of massive state budget shortfalls due to COVID-19. Capital + Growth is a top priority for our ecosystem. The CBSA team worked tirelessly behind the scenes to protect the program and mobilized our members to communicate the importance of the program, which is a critical source of non-dilutive funding for our life sciences companies.
