WBBA Business Solutions

Your job is to manage your company’s resources wisely - Our job is to help your organization save money.

Purchasing laboratory supplies or office equipment, saving tax dollars, attracting, training and retaining valuable employees, and reducing a company’s exposure to risk, regardless of size, research focus and stage of development—all biotechnology and medical device companies share these business objectives. But many don’t have the time, resources or personnel to assess which vendors have the expertise to serve them best, and at the most competitive price.

This is where your WBBA membership can be of even greater value. The WBBA, as part of its relationship with the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), has partnered with industry leaders that offer top-quality products and services essential to the business operations of members’ companies, and has negotiated discounted prices and or enhanced services on behalf of its members.

WBBA is a BIO Business Solutions® Partner. Learn more. (BIO Business Solutions® Partners are indicated below with the BIO logo.)
