Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “Westchester is home to a thriving Life Science sector from globally leading organizations, to noted innovators and ground-breaking start-ups. There is a reason why so many leaders are looking at Westchester and trust that this where they will be able to thrive and change the world through their science and research. This should not be kept an industry secret – everyone in Westchester should hold as a point of pride just how great the resources, infrastructure, and talent that we have invested in and that are native to our County’s unique background – that have made all this possible, and which will only help to grow and scale this sector to record heights in the years to come.”

Westchester County Director of Economic Development Bridget Gibbons said: “Westchester County is a dominant force in New York City’s regional life sciences economy. Westchester’s life sciences community enjoys access to the nation’s largest talent pool, a collaborative business environment and can offer its employees an outstanding quality of life.

We are home to enterprising startups, relocating companies who are in growth mode, and national firms who are setting the bar for industry excellence. Hosting our New York City counterparts for an insider’s look at what is happening in their backyard was an outstanding experience that paves the way for future collaboration.”
