Solano: We're Good For Biotech

Solano: We're Good For Biotech
EDC joins Team California effort at international convention in a bid to lure more business to the area.

The Solano EDC will participate in the 2007 BIO International Convention, to be held in Boston from May 6-7, to acquaint more industrial leaders with the advantages of locating facilities in Solano County.

Michael Ammann, president of Solano EDC, said this convention attracts more than 20,000 leaders in the biotech field, and is a " great forum for Solano County to show what it has to offer in this growing industry."

Ammann and a team of economic development specialists from throughout California will be in Boston, working as part of the Team California effort to attract new businesses to the state.

"Solano County is strategically placed to take full advantage of the growing biotech industry in Northern California," Ammann said. "Solano County is within a one-hour commute of both the U.C. Berkeley and Davis campuses, and we already have strong base of fortune 500 firms already within our borders."

Team California focuses on establishing contacts with potential companies that are start-ups, rapidly expanding, or planning to relocate to the state. At selected regional and national conferences the team members network to create and maintain relationships with targeted industry leaders.

"For Solano County, this means EDC is able to come home with a list of potential companies that have expressed interested in learning more about our communities," Amman said. "All of these

contact leads are immediately distributed to the economic development specialists that work for our cities."
