And with offices from Covington, Kentucky and Fort Collins, Colorado to Shanghai, China and Melbourne, Australia, bioLOGIC has quickly built strong global ties since its founding in 2007 when cofounders Nigel Ferrey and Dr. Ray Takigiku decided to start a life science management and investment firm.
But true to its Northern Kentucky roots, bioLOGIC has made its 4,500 square foot space in Covington its home base.
With an all-star credentialed team of experienced in-house experts from across the life sciences, bioLOGIC offers clients an array of services, from strategic consulting to Board representation and executive level management.

Ultimately, these plans are moving forward.
"Life science companies are no different than companies in other industries," van Gilse says. "A novel idea, a good management team and capital are the foundations to grow a company. The life science companies that are thriving in the Greater Cincinnati area are those companies that have been able to combine novel ideas with talented people and have raised money to move toward commercialization."
The very things bioLOGIC can help with.
