Bionow, Chemicals Northwest and Sci-Tech Daresbury will be co-hosting a business pitching and networking opportunities event for companies operating in the life sciences and chemicals sector.
The event is not only a great opportunity to present to the life science and chemicals community but also give companies a unique chance to hear about the latest technologies and innovations available from some of the leading companies in the North.

The event will benefit the following companies: 
• Those based in the North of England
• Developers of technology, products and expertise in the life sciences and chemicals sector
• Suppliers of technology into the life sciences and chemicals sector
• Users of products, technology & expertise from life science and chemicals companies

The value of rapid pitching and networking activities is of real value to help to support the growth of businesses. In particular it helps to identify business development opportunities, source business-critical expertise and development of collaborative routes to market. The aim of the event is to integrate the networks within the sector and create new opportunities for all.

• Who are you?
• What is your business?
• What is your offer or technology?
• What do you need from other life science and chemical companies?
