MRSB Consulting Services would like to extend its congratulations to the PEI BioAlliance, which recently announced it will receive up to $3.8 million in funding from the federal goverment to support bioscience-based companies in Prince Edward Island.
The BioAlliance is one of only 15 organizations selected across Canada for funding through the new Canadian Accelerator and Incubator Program (CAIP) that hopes to accelerate business development. This sector has seen phenomenal growth on PEI in recent years with 40 companies, 1,200 jobs and a goal to attract 30 to 40 new companies to the province in the next five years.
"We think our track record established by the strong growth of bioscience companies and partnerships among our businesses, research and government agencies has served us well in this competition and will contionue to do so throughout the life of this project and beyond," said PEI BioAlliance Executive Director Rory Francis.
Here are some photos - courtesy of the PEI BioAlliance - taken during their funding announcement in Charlottetown.

Well, another fall season is upon us and it's hard to believe that the PEI Marathon has already been and gone. MRSB Group once again held the role of Title Sponsor, and we always feel privileged to have the MRSB Marathon - the weekend's ultimate attraction - bearing our name. Here are a few photo highlights of this year's events. And, because we live on PEI after all, you might see a familiar face or two!
Our team poses for a couple of group shots in the office before race weekend.
There was great energy in downtown Charlottetown come race day!
