“Bio is the new black.” (Or — perhaps to Brooklyn health product entrepreneurs — the lucrative hue of biotech is actually gold).
For nearly three-years here in “Techreative Brooklyn,” I’ve studied the elements of the tech/bio/med revolution-in-the-making in our own unique borough.
Just consider these synergistic moving parts:
- The booming 3D-printing sector (think MakerBot, Voodoo Manufacturing, etc.)
- The flood of novel startup ways and means (think Kickstarter)
- The powerful new modes in digital media (think Huge)
- Public-private partnerships (think Brooklyn Tech Triangle)
- Economic development organizations (think Brooklyn Navy Yard)
- Higher-ed combines (think Education Innovation Network)
- Biotech campuses (think BioBAT)
- Health incubators (think SUNY Downstate Biotech)
- The world’s first DIY bio lab (think Genspace)
- The “team-hacking” of the real world (think Brooklyn coworkers, incubators, accelerators, meetups and maker spaces)
- Revolutionary life-science DigiFabricators (think OpenTrons, Modern Meadow, OpenBCI)
