Synthetic Biology Technology

Are you a startup working with synthetic biology? Yes? We want to hear from you!

There’s still time to join our SynBio Stars program and showcase your synthetic biology innovation to our global community of bio-economy leaders AND deliver a presentation direct to a host of potential partners, customers plus corporate and VC investors at our SynBio Markets event in Berlin in November. If you are a synthetic biology startup, being a part of this will drive your business forward, supercharge your promotional activity and fast-track your business objectives.

We’ve already received a great response to this initiative, a sister to the popular Bio-Stars held at our flagship event, World Bio Markets.  And we know that being a startup means that budgets can be tight, so we are offering a very special price to ensure that our opportunity is open to all, whatever your current stage of development.

Reflecting the broad range of opportunities that exist within synthetic biology, we welcome applications from companies working within agriculture, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care, food, consumer products, lab automation hardware and software, protein engineering and design, gene editing and synthesis.

The application process costs nothing, and is easy, so don’t delay and apply today.
