About the bioLOGIC Innovation Awards

Designed to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and transformative impact in the life sciences, the bioLOGIC Innovation Awards (BIAs) are open to early stage companies working to advance human health in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.

Together with our partners, bioLOGIC provides mentorship, learning opportunities and financial support to startup companies working to develop new and improved technology platforms, products or resources that serve the region and beyond.


The BIAs are intended to provide support to scalable, original businesses and startups with a biotechnology or human health focus.

Launched in fall 2018, the BIAs are an annual, community-funded event that commences in October and concludes in February. While the number of and amount of awards distributed each year is based on the volume and strength of applications and determined by the bioLOGIC Board of Directors and the Community Advisory Group, a minimum of $50,000 will be awarded to one applicant at the end of each award selection cycle. Award funds can be used for product development, marketing and other expenses, excluding salaries.
