Recognized By Governor
As a Rhode Island-based company, Blackburn Labs is well positioned to take advantage of the many life sciences organizations that are based in the area. Being within driving distance of Boston, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and many other leading locations in clinical research, pharmaceuticals, and health care, we are in what we like to call the “life sciences belt” of the world.
As a result, our team has accumulated a vast reach of experience in life sciences, with a history of working with companies like Boston Scientific, Admedus, ProCom Rx, Parexel, and many others. Most recently, we built a virtual healthcare app for Brigham & Women’s Hospital, which was recently featured in the news. We are very proud that this caught the attention of Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo during a correspondence from Blackburn Labs with her office, who wrote to tell thank us and congratulate us on our success.
It is well known the governor has put a strong focus on building local businesses, especially within STEM. As a member of the RI Tech Collective, Blackburn Labs benefits from many of the great programs they facilitate, some of which were supported by the governor’s office. Nonetheless, it was thrilling to have such direct and personal recognition for all our hard work.
At Blackburn Labs we are extremely proud of the impact we’ve had on people’s lives. Whether it be life saving efforts like our work at Brigham & Women’s or helping children read with our contributions to some of FableVision’s great education apps, we are proud that our work not only improves the world but helps grow local business.
