For nearly 25 years, Biocom has advanced the California life science industry through a variety of member-driven initiatives, programs and events. Our mission is to provide a myriad of ways that employees at all levels of your organization can connect with others in the industry, develop themselves professionally, and take your company to new heights. We believe that when you’re with Biocom, you are Biocom.

As you begin preparing for 2020, we encourage our network of HR professionals to take a minute to familiarize yourself with the ways that your employees can engage with us and their peers, and share this information with your colleagues to help them maximize their benefits.

C-Suite
We have a large range of offerings for C-level executives of our life science companies. These include networking events, complimentary JP Morgan meeting space and receptions, partnering days with pharma, VCs and other investors, and an annual Global Life Science Partnering Conference. Through this programming, C-level executives are provided peer-to-peer engagement, and a venue to discuss pertinent, informative issues and to showcase your company to the community.

Government Relations
Biocom’s Public Policy department offers Federal, State and Local policy advocacy for your company year-round. Connect with us to engage in local policy working groups, mayoral roundtables, congressional briefings, and to create invaluable connections to lawmakers and regulators. Whether you’re a small, medium, or large-sized company, Biocom’s core advocacy efforts are designed to amplify your company’s influence at the federal, state, and local levels. We educate our policymakers on our industry’s needs, engage them as partners to advance policies that support research and innovation, and actively oppose legislation harmful to life science business.

Procurement, Supply Chain & Operations
Our industry-leading Biocom Purchasing Group offers discount pricing from 30+ suppliers for commonly used products and services, available to all Biocom members. We are your strategic sourcing advisor, giving you benefits of scale for services your company needs to grow. Take advantage of these programs for savings that you can reinvest into your company. Additionally, purchasing and supply chain professionals are encouraged to join our PG Advisory Board for program feedback and vetting of future suppliers and programs.

Capital Development
Creating turnkey partnering opportunities that propel innovation: Biocom connects life science companies creating innovative technologies with the capital investors who seek them.

Facilities & EH&S
Our Facilities receptions and workshops cater to facility managers, service providers, and environmental health & safety professionals. They offer continuing education through presentations, discussions of timely issues, and sharing best practices. These quarterly workshops, professional certification courses, and annual receptions offer an informal setting to mingle with fellow facility professionals from other organizations.
