Our industry is supported by innovators within the industry as well as in the arena of property development and local, regional, and state economic development. The Leading Impact Award seeks to recognize those innovators who help advance the industry in these areas. The Award was developed by MassBio’s Economic Development Advisory Group (EDAG).

Leading Impact awardees will be those individuals and organizations that have successfully worked to improve the competitiveness of Massachusetts as a destination for the life sciences industry. Examples of potential honorees include municipal governments that have removed barriers to entry for life science facility projects, organizations which have advanced industry growth through unique civic engagement, developers which have created new settings that have accelerated industry growth, or individuals whose exemplary actions over time or on specific projects have contributed to the physical growth of the industry in the Commonwealth.
