Seattle named a top life science hub by CBRE
CBRE named Seattle’s life science industry one of the top in the nation, according to a recent report. Ranked ninth, Seattle brought in record venture capital funding in the second quarter of 2020 and has one of the lowest lab vacancy rates in the nation. The report was based on the life sciences job base, the size of its lab inventory and the amount of funding it attracts from venture capital firms and the National Institutes of Health.
“Seattle has become a hub of life sciences innovation, with a unique convergence of world-class scientific research and premier technology talent,” the report stated. “This synergy offers the opportunity to capture top talent at the forefront of the life science and technology industries in one place.”
