BioSF kicks off effort to attract life sciences

Federal money, a state program and local partnerships — plus a newly hired leader — are coming together in an effort to swell the ranks San Francisco’s life sciences community and attract more jobs.
BioSF, modeled on the city’s China-focused economic development initiative, ChinaSF, looks to capitalize on the success of the city’s Mission Bay biotech enclave.
The effort is backed by $200,000 from the state’s Innovation Hub program — federal Small Business Administration money funneled through the Small Business Development Center at Humboldt State University — and a $35,000 grant from the city.
