For almost 10 years, MilliporeSigma has supported the work of Seeding Labs through equipment donations, financial support, and as the founding sponsor of the TeleScience website.
Through these collaborations, MilliporeSigma has honed their commitment to sparking curiosity in the next generation of scientists and supporting them no matter what part of the world they work in.
“For nearly a decade, MilliporeSigma has been on the front lines of innovative corporate-nonprofit relationships,” said Melissa Wu. “Their investment in our mission has been crucial to our success as a nonprofit, and I’d like to think that our work together has been as beneficial to MilliporeSigma as well.”
In a ceremony highlighting so many effective corporate-nonprofit partnerships, the relationship between Seeding Labs and MilliporeSigma was featured as one of four honorees for this award.
At the ceremony, Dr. Wu highlighted award’s importance for Seeding Labs, saying, “We are honored that the Boston Business Journal has seen the transformative power of our longstanding partnership with MilliporeSigma.”
