Microbiome Insights included in list of BC’s top emerging life sciences companies
MARCH 14, 2018 — Microbiome Insights is honoured to be featured in the 2018 Emerging Rocket List by the management consulting firm Rocket Builders. The Emerging Rocket List is part of “Ready to Rocket”, a business recognition program that showcases British Columbia’s technology companies with the greatest potential for revenue growth as well as investment and market breakthrough.
The Ready to Rocket program encompasses 4 technology sectors: Information and Communications Technology, Cleantech, Life Science, and Digital Health. Microbiome Insights was one of the 10 companies included in the Emerging Rocket Life Science List, winning this recognition for the second year in a row.
Lists in the Ready to Rocket program are predictive of success; since 2003, the program has accurately identified future growth leaders in each category through rigorous sector and company analyses spanning several months.
To qualify as a candidate in the Life Science category, companies must have established industry relationships and must also be undergoing customer validation and regulatory approval. The selection committee assesses candidates based on early indicators of long-term potential and increasing shareholder value, such as passing key regulatory hurdles and achieving related validation steps.
“We identify companies that have both innovative technology and a fit within the industry value chain. Our analysis of the market and the company progress led to our selection of Microbiome Insights as a Ready to Rocket Life Science company,” said Thealzel Lee, Senior Partner, Rocket Builders.
