BioSpace is proud to present its NextGen Bio “Class of 2021,” a list of up-and-coming life sciences companies in North America that recently launched. To come up with this list, BioSpace looked at companies that recently launched over the past few years with Series A funding. They were then weighted by several different categories and ranked in a cumulative fashion, based on the points awarded for each category. These categories were: finance, collaborations, pipeline, growth potential, and innovation. The NextGen Bio Class of 2021 is a stellar group of companies that are already making an enormous impact on the industry now and will continue into the future. Congratulations to this group!
