Support Our Mission
make a donation to support the biologic innovation awards
The bioLOGIC Foundation was established in 2015 with a mission to elevate, cultivate and financially support transformative life science organizations in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. As a community-supported foundation, every tax-deductible donation is matched—dollar-for-dollar—by SIDIS, our founding partners.
As a nonprofit, we focus on three core areas to advance our community. Those areas include:
· Innovation—We offer annual financial support to life science startups through a highly competitive $50,000 pitch contest called the bioLOGIC Innovation Awards. Our most recent BIA winner, OmniVis, is using the $50,000 in award funds to pilot a revolutionary device that rapidly detects infectious diseases like Cholera—a disease that infects 3 million people annually and wastes $2 billion each year in treatment costs.
· Education—We provide free educational events to the public and provide access to entrepreneurship resources at events like Techstars Startup Week.
· Entrepreneurship—We share resources and knowledge with bioLOGIC Innovation Awardees mentoring local innovators and helping them bring ideas to life.
