The BioHealth industry is one of the Greater Baltimore region’s fastest growing industries. With more than 800 life sciences companies, 70 federal labs and more than 275,000 people working in BioHealth in the region, the Baltimore-Washington region is competing with markets like Raleigh-Durham, San Diego and Boston.
The EAGB has been supporting the growth of BioHealth companies for some time, most recently through the DreamIt Health accelerator, which supported 15 companies including Avhana, Protenus and Sisu Global Health. In the past year, Baltimore has seen several companies secure support for growth including WellDoc’s $22 million Series B financing, Protenus completing a $4million Series A round and Sisu Global Health winning Steve Case’s $100,000 Rise of the Rest competition.
