August. National companies that are part of the value chain in the Life Sciences sector of Coyol Free Zone will have a valuable opportunity to make their innovations known to the country through Coyol Impulsa Awards.

Coyol Impulsa is an award created by Coyol Free Zone to invite suppliers that provide any service integrated into the manufacturing processes of the companies installed in the park to promote the competitiveness and productivity of the companies of the Life Sciences Cluster in the country.

“The supplier companies are a fundamental part of the added value chain for the companies of the Life Sciences Cluster, and will be an indispensable pillar in the future of the free zones. At CFZ we wanted to propose and reward those suppliers that, day by day, contribute positively to the manufacturing of the companies operating in our free zone”, said the General Director of Coyol Free Zone, Carlos Wong.

Coyol Impulsa is a contest that seeks exposure for outstanding companies to inspire small businesses and entrepreneurs who wish to forge a path in the Life Sciences industry.
