Accelerating Biotech
Through the Lab
And Beyond

McKinsey Global Research declared the 21st Century the Biotech Century, where Biotech would economically impact 400 use cases, half of them outside of healthcare.

The opportunity is hardly a question: in 2020 it was estimated
that $3.1B was invested in alternative proteins while
Synthetic Biology Companies raised $8B.

offering to investors.
