Built With Biology — The Bioeconomy Summit

The post-COVID plan for more resilient, sustainable, and equitable bioeconomies everywhere

As biology ravages the global economy, we have a once-in-a-lifetime, trillion-dollar opportunity to help shape how biology will also rebuild it. We can redefine the economy, supply chains, and manufacturing at local, state, national, and global levels, and bring back jobs lost due to COVID-19.

We want you to be a part of the #BuiltWithBiology story. With California as a working model, we are developing specific policy recommendations to reinvigorate the global bioeconomy in a more sustainable, prosperous, and equitable way for all. Let’s re-think normal, set a bright new standard, and show how we can do things differently.
