iBIO is offering an exclusive virtual sneak peek into Fulton Labs and West End on Fulton – the first new wet and dry lab buildings built in downtown Chicago in decades, designed by one of the foremost development teams in the U.S. As you know better than anyone, Chicago’s primary opportunity for continued ecosystem growth has been new lab infrastructure, and it’s finally here.
Please join us for an interactive visualization of the new Fulton Market facilities, plus a conversation with John Flavin. John’s new biomedical startup platform, Portal Innovations, will anchor both buildings. Hear the latest developments on Portal’s work to accelerate innovation, from discovery through commercial proof of concept, for life sciences, medtech and bioinformatics companies.

HealthTECH Startup Competition
In response to highly successful events over the past seven years, Insight Innovation Center and Matter are co-hosting the eighth annual HealthTECH Startup Competition on the week of November 16, 2020. This year’s event will be virtual, with the top ten leading early-stage device and digital health startup finalists competing for $20,000 in cash and prizes.
First-round startup competitors will be selected by a judging panel of leaders from academia, global corporations, investors, and community health organizations. They will narrow the list of eligible competitors down to the top 20 teams. The second round of vetting and review will identify the finalists that will present live in November at the HealthTECH Competition. Startups will provide a five-minute pitch followed by a five-minute Q&A during a private stream with the judges. On the merit of their live pitches, jurors will select the top three startups for cash and prize awards at the event.
On November 20th, all ten startups will give their final one-minute presentations to the larger audience of event attendees and judges. This is an opportunity to gain the attention of the attendees and take home the people’s choice award, voted by tweeting with the hashtag #InsightHealthTECH20. We hope you can attend this great event and look forward to hearing your voice in the People’s Choice.

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) announced a $9 million Notice of Funding Opportunity to boost the development of wet labs across Illinois.
According to DCEO, grant funds will be awarded on a competitive basis to fund the construction or renovation of facilities that house wet lab space and promote the growth of life sciences in Illinois. The grant funds are limited to capital expenses.
Preferred project locations will be where new wet lab development is likely to act as a catalyst to the local economy due to its proximity to other life sciences companies, researchers, and educational institutions.
