Captis Biotechnology Rejoins the OBI

Welcome back to Captis Biotechnology, who rejoined the OBI this month with space in our first floor north wing. Captis has created targeted biosensors and bioimaging agents for cancer and other diseases.

We are pleased to have them return to the incubator!

Thank You for Your Continued Support!

OBI is gearing up for some excellent free entrepreneurial programming this year, designed to support startups of all stages of development across the state. We have monthly Lunch & Learns on all kinds of interesting topics geared toward the life science community, regular Happy Hour networking events, and a robust BioMentoring program.

We are so pleased to be able to bring you these valuable programs and events, and we thank you for your support over the past 10 years since our incubator opened. To help support our upcoming educational offerings, each of our programs has sponsorship opportunities available. We also have Platinum, Gold, and Silver corporate sponsorship packages for a year-long impact.

To continue your support of OBI’s programming with a tax-deductible sponsorship, please take a look at our Sponsorship Kit and contact Rene Miller for sponsorship or questions.
