BDB NEWS: Life Science Growth in Palm Beach County

Published Thursday, March 26, 2020

 

As the Nation works to combat the new set of circumstances presented to us by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County (BDB) is continuing to support the growth of life science companies in Palm Beach County.

Since October 2019, the Business Development Board has facilitated the growth of eight life science companies that have created nearly 1,200 high salary jobs for local residents.

We’re also pleased to share that there are more than 800 additional jobs from over 15 projects in the pipeline anticipated to close in 2020, including a major HQ announcement as early as next week. In this report, you’ll learn about life science activity over the past six months, prospects in the pipeline, and resources dedicated to helping local businesses.

If you know of a life science company that needs assistance, please contact Robert Mino, BDB Vice President of Life Sciences at rmino@bdb.org.
