About the Program
Up to 10 biotech startups will be selected for a free Benchling “Ask the Expert” session, on the 28th of February, where a Benchling employee will demonstrate how biotech scientists can maximize productivity in the lab.
Up to three of these 10 startups will be selected to receive a complementary 1:1 solution consulting session with Benchling, and will each receive up to 5 free software licenses for their company for one year - with the caveat that the startup agrees to pay the associated implementation costs of Benchling. After the 12 months of continued free usage have lapsed, the selected companies will need to pay for ongoing usage of the Benchling solutions.
