06 Dec BioCity-based businesses triumph up at Medilink East Midlands Business Awards 2019.
Friday 06 December, Nottingham, England UK. At a black-tie event held in Nottingham last night, 200 leading names and rising stars of the life sciences came together at the Medilink East Midlands Business Awards 2019.
A celebration of innovation within the region, a total of seven award categories were created by Medilink to recognise and honour the ground-breaking work of East Midlands-based life science ventures. Award categories included “Start up”, “Export Achievement”, “Delivering Innovation in to Health and Care”, “Innovation”, “Outstanding Achievement”, “Deal of the Year” and “One to Watch”.
The evening held particular significance for BioCity, the pioneering life science incubator and business collective; as four of the seven awards were won by members of their business collective.
Toby Reid, BioCity CEO said, “We have the privilege of working with entrepreneurs who are tackling health and environmental challenges. The journey they make from idea to scalable businesses is not an easy one so awards such as these are incredibly important because they shine a light on the hard work, dedication and innovation of the people behind some of the most pioneering life science businesses in the East Midlands.
“For us at BioCity, it is particularly heartening to see so many familiar faces amongst the nominees, most of whom we have known from the very beginning, helping them grow and develop to become award-winning businesses.”
