KC Region Designated a Tech Hub

In KC News, Technology by EDCKC Staff

ICYMI, the U.S. Economic Development Administration named the KC region a “Tech Hub” in October as part of a historic investment to strengthen the U.S. economy and national security. 

The regional proposal, called KC BioHub, led by BioNexus KC and 60+ partner organizations including EDCKC, will ramp up life-saving vaccine production and other preventative technologies to leverage regional assets and the existing ecosystem to become a global leader in biomanufacturing and life sciences. 

KC BioHub is now applying for phase two funding of up to $75 million, which would go toward the creation of 100 new biotech firms and 10,000 local jobs, as well as bolster the local biologics and biomanufacturing industry. Click here to read recent coverage in the KC Business Journal. If your organization would like to get involved, reach out to BioNexus for more information.
