A Healthier You | Life & Bioscience Businesses

Where state-of-the art laboratories stand alongside 19th-century gothic basilicas…

Covington is an historical river city but don’t let that fool you. The City is home to a thriving critical mass of life science and bioscience companies and employment, and the national outlook is robust. Employment in life science companies grew more than 82% in Northern Kentucky from 2014-2019, with most of the growth in Covington’s urban core per an analysis by Northern Kentucky Tri-Ed.

That trajectory will continue with the $15 million dollar life sciences research and development facility (aka wet lab), which has the potential (and this is no exaggeration), to change the world. Not only will this type of facility house the resources often cost prohibited to startup companies, but it will also create a hub of entrepreneurial spirit and shared connections.

“We doubled down on Covington. We are bringing people from all over to the city and making an impact.”
