Founded in 2018, BioscienceLA is an innovation catalyst for life sciences and health innovation in the greater LA region, creating more opportunities for funding, space and talent, as well as messaging and awareness-building. The independent not-for-profit organisation ensures that Los Angeles has a collaborative, well-coalesced ecosystem that encompasses all aspects of the Southern California life sciences cluster. The organisation turned to DocSend to securely share sensitive financial information with board members, disseminate programme information to programme participants and execute partnership agreements with participating organisations.
Prior to DocSend, David J. Whelan, CEO of BioscienceLA, indicated that the organisation would share sensitive information with its board via email attachments. ‘We needed a more secure way of sharing sensitive financial and strategic information with our board. Email attachments would get lost or were hard to open on mobile, so there had to be a better way,’ Dave shared.
Dave turned to DocSend’s secure document sharing platform to safely distribute communications with the organisation’s board of directors, as well as onboard programme participants for a new internship programme.
