Why you should attend NGBI

Before the inception of the NGBI summit, Canadian life science professionals faced a significant challenge: the lack of accessible networking events within the country. Most opportunities required travel outside of Canada and came with a high price tag. This barrier limited the participation of many talented individuals and organizations, hindering collaboration and growth within the Canadian life sciences community. NGBI recognized this gap, which is why the event is both accessible and affordable, right here in Canada.

Many people within the industry were unaware of the latest developments and innovations happening in their own backyard. The lack of a centralized platform for sharing ideas, research, and technologies led to a fragmented understanding of the Canadian life sciences landscape. This summit creates a cohesive space where professionals could come together, learn from each other, and foster a sense of unity and collaboration within the industry.

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of the NGBI summit is the opportunity to showcase startups coming out of stealth mode. These emerging companies represent the cutting edge of innovation, yet often remain hidden. NGBI shines a spotlight on these hidden gems, providing them with a platform to connect with potential partners, investors, and collaborators.
