China-incorporated Fenglin Group, the administrative arm of the Shanghai Xuhui government in charge of Life Sciences, aims to establish an integrated ecosystem of local and international stakeholders in Shanghai’s Xuhui District to accelerate biopharmaceutical innovation and development.

Fenglin Group will promote the co-working laboratory space with a focus on overseas biomedical science startups and SMEs planning to develop their business in China. On its part, LSI will use its existing business networks to recommend to Fenglin Group, Singapore and other overseas biomedical sciences companies that intend to have a business foothold in China and need co-working laboratory space.

“We extend a warm welcome to all our honoured guests, including the top Management of Fenglin Group. LSI and Fenglin will work closely together to fulfil the goals of our strategic cooperation in the co-working laboratory business.

China’s life sciences industry is an important part of China’s ‘Made in China 2025’ strategy and its rapid growth has seen the birth of thousands of start- ups and SMEs in biotech, agritech, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices doing research and development to bring innovative products into the market. Our co-working laboratory space business will enable them to conduct their R&D without incurring high CAPEX to build the facilities.”
