Medical company specific, BIO, the national organization for the biotechnology industry is hosting a connection opportunity

    1. As BIO puts it, Information Sharing and Manufacturing Capacity are meant to operate as a peer-to-peer system. Similar to Craigslist, all posts are public. A representative of a company or organization may post a request or availability; someone can comment on that post, then the two can connect and fill the need between themselves. The BIO Coronavirus Hub is simply the conduit to make these connections happen.
