Three Innovative Phoenix Biotech Businesses Secure Spot in Prestigious Start-Up Stadium Stage at 2023 BIO International Conventionhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/news/8Three Innovative Phoenix Biotech Businesses Secure Spot in Prestigious Start-Up Stadium Stage at 2023 BIO International Convention<div class="ExternalClassE19C6FED6E6946BEBEC53294FBC519BC"><p>​Phoenix-based start-ups <a href="https://electratect.com/">ElectraTect</a>, <a href="https://www.faknostics.com/">FAKnostics</a>, and <a href="https://www.referencemedicine.com/">Reference Medicine</a> are among the 50 global companies selected to participate in the highly acclaimed <a href="https://www.bio.org/events/bio-international-convention/start-stadium-2023">Start-Up Stadium</a> at the <a href="https://www.bio.org/events/bio-international-convention">2023 BIO International Convention</a>. This unique platform provides seed-stage companies with an invaluable opportunity to interact with influential investors and receive feedback that will contribute to their journey toward success.</p><p>Competing on the Start-Up Stadium stage opens avenues for these start-ups to connect with key players in the investment community, venture philanthropy groups, and strategic partners, and gain access to previously unreachable capital.</p><p>"Companies are flocking to Phoenix, making it number one in life science job growth among the nation's emerging life science markets," said Mayor Kate Gallego. "The bioscience health care workforce has increased by over 60% since 2008, which drives our economy forward. Watching businesses such as ElectraTect, FAKnostics, and Reference Medicine take the global bioscience stage and represent Phoenix is exciting."</p><p>This year's BIO International Convention, set to take place from June 5-8 in Boston, Massachusetts, aims to promote collaboration between large corporations and fledgling businesses in the biotechnology industry. Representing the City of Phoenix Pavilion (booth #3035) are nearly 30 companies and organizations. Attendees are encouraged to visit the City of Phoenix Pavilion at the 2023 BIO International Conference.</p><p>"As America's fifth-largest city, we are also one of the top 10 places for start-ups, driving our bioscience industry forward at rapid speeds," said the City of Phoenix Community and Economic Director, Christine Mackay. "Investors from across the globe are doubling down on their commitment to bioscience in Phoenix. I'm confident that the emerging life science opportunities and extraordinary innovation ecosystem in Phoenix will only continue to thrive. Our delegation is the best of the best, and we are ready to show off all Phoenix has to offer at BIO 2023."</p><p>These Phoenix-based biotech start-ups, selected as finalists, are working on groundbreaking projects.</p><p>"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to present at Start-Up Stadium and are excited to share our vision for a world where cancer research isn't stopped by specimen access, but rather, accelerated by it," said Inga Rose, Founder, and CEO, Reference Medicine.</p><p>Similarly, FAKnostics is making a mark in cancer therapeutics.</p><p>"We are extremely excited to have this chance to present our science on groundbreaking cancer therapeutics and detection of highly aggressive cancers," said Timothy Marlowe, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, FAKnostics, LLC. "FAK is a protein found in 80% of all cancers and FAKnostics has pioneered a brand-new way to design drugs that inhibit FAK, which represent the first of its kind. This is an excellent opportunity to meet prospective investors that want to bring revolutionary medicines to cancer patients in need."</p><p>Making waves in innovation, ElectraTect among those selected this year.</p><p>“EelctraTect is honored to be selected among the hundreds of applicants to present at Start-Up Stadium and represent the budding biotech start-up hub in Phoenix," Dr. Christina Forbes, Senior Scientist.</p><p>The Start-Up Stadium will distinguish evaluations of start-up company finalists who have raised less than $1M from those of emerging company finalists who have secured more than $1M but less than $10M to date. Winners will be identified in both categories. Previous winners have reaped benefits such as "fast-track" admission review to incubator programs at the <a href="https://www.illumina.com/company/illumina-for-startups/accelerator-program.html">Illumina Accelerator</a> and <a href="https://innovationspace.org/">The Innovation Space</a>, along with complimentary one-year memberships in the <a href="https://www.bio.org/events/bio-international-convention">Biotechnology Innovation Organization</a>, inclusive of access to cost-saving programs of <a href="https://www.bio.org/save/business-solutions">BIO Business Solutions</a>.</p><h3>About the Phoenix Start-ups:<br></h3><p><a href="https://electratect.com/">ElectraTect, Inc.</a> is developing a solution to one of society's most recent problems – marijuana detection. Like alcohol, marijuana use can impair the operation of any vehicle. ElectraTect's breathalyzers detect tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana. The device would use electricity and an oxidation reaction to detect levels of THC. Police would employ the breathalyzer roadside, with the long-term goal of the device being accessible for the public to use in the home.</p><p><a href="https://www.faknostics.com/">FAKnostics, LLC</a> is a research leader in therapeutic development with core competencies in pharmacology and drug discovery. FAK (focal adhesion kinase) is a cytoplasmic protein tyrosine kinase that is over-expressed and activated in several advanced-stage solid cancers. Over the last four years, FAKnostics has developed a focus on structure-based drug design to complement and extend cancer biology capabilities. In the future, FAKnostics plans to continue the development of FAK-related drugs to provide new therapies for cancers and other diseases that lack effective treatment options.</p><p><a href="https://www.referencemedicine.com/">Reference Medicine</a> was founded by researchers who were tired of traditional biospecimen sourcing getting in the way of science. Reference Medicine makes it easy to find the specimens you need at a fraction of the cost - so your team can get on to building the next big thing in healthcare.</p><h3>About Phoenix:</h3><p>Phoenix is the fifth-largest American city, home to 1.7 million people. The most populous state capital, it was named the 2017 “Highest Performing City" by Governing Magazine. Key industries include advanced business and financial services, technology, health and life sciences, hospitality, and advanced manufacturing. At 517 square miles, with world-renowned mountain trails and opportunity for diverse lifestyles, Phoenix has the shortest average commute times among the 12 largest U.S. metropolitan areas.

All Our New Neighbors; They’re Not Just From L.A.https://www.investinphoenix.com/news/6All Our New Neighbors; They’re Not Just From L.A.<div class="ExternalClassFC814BC53F714D7786D1BEFF08BDAF7B"><p><strong>​Say “hello" to more than 230,000 new Phoenix neighbors. There are even more on the way, as Arizona continues its rapid population growth into 2022.</strong></p><p>When you hear about all these people making Greater Phoenix their new home, do you wonder where they are moving from? </p><h3>The Top Migration S​​ou​​rces for Gr​​eater Phoenix</h3><p>The U.S. Census Bureau recently released data covering five years of migration patterns from its 2020 American Community Survey. </p><p>Topping the list for new Phoenicians was the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, California metro area. More people moved into Greater Phoenix from L.A. than the entire population of El Mirage. Just about 38,000 Angelinos chose to make Phoenix their new home. The more than 11,600 people moving north from Tucson put that metro second on the list.</p><p>Asian countries were the third-largest group, with over 10,500 people moving to Phoenix, almost the same number as the combined total of Central American, Mexican and Canadian immigrants coming to the Valley.</p><p>Anyone wondering why the Cubs sell out all their spring training games and why so many Chicago- restaurants open in Phoenix needs to look at Windy City's contribution to Phoenix's nation-leading population growth. The Chicago metropolitan area, which includes counties in Indiana and Wisconsin, was the fourth-largest contributor of new residents, with almost 8,000 people leaving Lake Michigan snow for Sonoran desert sunshine.</p><p>Central America (not including Mexico) ranked fifth, adding nearly 7,000 people to the Greater Phoenix population. Other metropolitan areas rounding out the top ten include Seattle, San Diego and Riverside, California, Flagstaff, and the combined totals from Mexico and Canada (the Census Migration Report does not separate the countries but instead combines them as “Northern America").</p><h3>The Migration Pat​ter​​ns Are Not a Surprise<br></h3><p>None of these migration patterns comes as a surprise to Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Phoenix is a city full of opportunity. People come here to improve their lives," said the Mayor. “Large businesses are finding we have well-trained professionals in key industries like biosciences, engineering, and green energy. Small businesses are finding the support and resources they need to grow and thrive. Our new neighbors like the job opportunities, the accessible outdoor life, and the kind of welcoming neighborhoods that make them feel right at home." </p><h3>Arizona Continues Fast ​​Populatio​​n Growth</h3><p>Even though the 2020 Decennial Census numbers have hardly been digested, the U.S. Census Bureau released its 2021 state population estimates on December 21. The new data projects Arizona will grow by nearly 100,000 people in 2021 over 2020, making the state the third fastest-growing. Only Texas and Florida added more people than the Grand Canyon State. Arizona continues to rank 14th nationally in population.</p><p>Over the last three national census counts, seven out of ten new Arizonans moved into Greater Phoenix, a percentage that has increased each decade. When Census 2021 county and metropolitan area population estimates are released in March 2022, it is likely that the Valley will once again top the nation in population growth.</p><p>“This data affirms what we are seeing in the market every day," said Christine Mackay, Phoenix Community and Economic Development Director. “We are excited to continue to see impacts of Phoenix's business environment, large workforce and quality of life in the attraction of new businesses and jobs into our community."​<br></p></div>People moving in to their new homehttps://www.investinphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/6/AdobeStock_282399192.jpg2/3/2023 11:30:35 PM

The metropolitan area unemployment rate continued to fall, dipping to 3.1 percent, down 0.1 percent from January and down from 6.7 percent a year ago.<br></p><p>Most hires took positions in the food and beverage industry sector reflecting seasonal hiring, increased tourism and more new restaurants opening this year than last February. Nearly 21,000 new positions were filled in the sector.</p><p>Retail hiring was also strong with almost 15,000 new hires compared to last year. </p><p>Professional, technical and scientific positions placed third, in a strong showing once again. More than 12,000 new positions were filled in the sector over the past year. The professional sector has been among the top three hiring sectors for the last five months in a row. This is the first time in the last five years the sector has had so many consecutive months of significantly increased hiring.</p><p>Jobs in the scientific sectors reflect Phoenix's nation-leading position in life sciences hiring, according to the CBRE 2022 Life Sciences market report.</p><p>Arizona's unemployment rate dropped to 3.6 percent, down from 3.7 percent in January and 6 percent a year earlier. The state added nearly 127,000 jobs in year-over-year comparisons with 30 percent of jobs statewide landing in areas other than Greater Phoenix. Dining and retail showed the greatest growth statewide outside the Phoenix metropolitan area.</p><p>Manufacturing hiring continued its Greater Phoenix growth adding 5,400 jobs compared to February 2021 and outstripping construction hiring again. Another 7,500 jobs were added in health care hiring.</p><p>Greater Phoenix continues to be among the strongest markets for hiring compared to other major metropolitan areas around the country, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.​<br></p></div>Interviewee accepting jobhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/5/AdobeStock_364843654.jpg2/3/2023 10:51:29 PM
