BIOQuébec and Biotech Finances create a partnership to promote dissemination of information about and between life sciences organizations in the francophonie
BROMONT (Québec) January 18, 2017 – BIOQuébec and Biotech Finances have joined forces to promote Québec’s life sciences companies within the Francophonie while also updating our local organizations on francophone businesses around the world who are in the same industry.
“We are thrilled to expand the Francophone life sciences information network in Québec”, states Biotech Finances’ Editor-In-Chief, Jacques-Bernard Taste. “This partnership with BIOQuébec fits well with our mission to bring together and inform the international francophone and francophile life sciences community with this unique medium dedicated to economics, finance, and business development.”
Specifically, BIOQuébec will act as a communication channel allowing its members to share their news and information with Biotech Finances’ editorial staff who will then, at their discretion, expand upon stories through in-depth interviews and additional research. The journalists working at this specialized outlet produce exclusive written works and audio and video presentations transmitted across Canada and throughout Europe.
Beginning in January, BIOQuébec members will receive Biotech Finances’ monthly electronic summary and will be able to access complete articles on a pay-per-view basis or with a yearly membership.
“This partnership offers great added value to our members”, says Anie Perrault, BIOQuébec’s Executive Manager. “It will allow them to broaden their reach when sharing news and learn more about opportunities available elsewhere. No specialized media outlet like it exists in the province, it’s really quite new!”
In addition, this collaboration between these two organizations will allow for the creation of the first comprehensive map of Québec’s life sciences industry. This printed map, measuring more than a meter wide, will be produced and distributed without cost to BIOQuébec members. It will contain information such as founding year, number of employees, name of the CEO, a description of activities as well as certain financial information.
“There are several interactive Web maps in Québec, but none of them contain all the sub-sectors or cover the whole province. Biotechs, CROs, and pharmas in all administrative regions are included in this one, which is a first, and our members will receive one at no charge!” declares Anie Perrault.
