The 2022 BioNTX iC3 Summit Will Bring Together Leaders and Changemakers to ‘Accelerate Life Sciences Across North Texas’

The once-a-year summit on September 22 and 23 is an innovation multiplier for capital, collaboration, and commercialization. Experts in the field will discuss strategy and exchange insights—and what's driving life science success across the region.

The bioscience and healthcare innovation community in North Texas is the home of start-ups and nationally recognized companies—one that’s positioned to attract additional industry growth.

BioNTX, a North Texas trade organization that’s a connector hub to build the industry and its ecosystem, is a leading source of support and resources to the community.

Its signature event, the iC3 Life Science Summit, brings together biotech leaders and changemakers. Experts in the industry will discuss insights, ideas, and strategies.  The  two-day forum will be held at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine on September 22 and 23.

iC³ = Innovation x Capital x Collaboration x Commercialization

BioNTX CEO Kathleen Otto says the naming of the summit is intentional: the combination of innovation, capital, collaboration, and commercialization is the very reason the life science industry is thriving in North Texas.

Science is vital to humanity’s future and the economic well-being of the region, says BioNTX. The focus of this year’s summit—Accelerating Life Sciences Across North Texas—supports that.

The iC3 Life Science Summit is a place where leaders come together to share ideas, exhibit the broad spectrum of North Texas bioscience research, and see the latest innovation, products, and services.

Catch the next Texas tech wave at iC3

The signature event will host startups through large multinationals representing industry sectors like biotech and pharma, as well as healthcare companies, academic research institutions, innovators, investors, vendor partners, and other leaders.

iC3 is designed to foster partnerships and collaboration. Attendees can connect with innovative leaders in the industry and exchange ideas, insights, trends, and stories while building business connections.

Tackling Texas Talent: Ensuring Biomanufacturers Don’t Look Elsewhere
Texas’ reputation for a business-friendly climate, available real estate, and top-notch life sciences research makes it a frequent site selection prospect for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. However, building a solid biopharma reputation and closing more of these deals will require better alignment, engagement, and discussion among legislators, regional economic development organizations, investors, and the numerous life science-focused industry associations in the state. This session will bring together economic development stakeholders, workforce development experts, and biopharma companies with a presence in Texas to discuss what’s working, what’s not, and opportunities we should collectively explore to raise Texas’ reputation as a leading state for biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
