About Beneficial Bio

Beneficial Bio is a network of social enterprises run by biologists. Our goal is to help labs around the world secure reagents quickly and economically to help achieve our mission of biotechnology and its benefits being accessible to the many, not the few. We founded our network because as biologists ourselves, we were tired of paying too much for reagents that took too long to arrive and didn’t serve our needs. We knew this wasn’t just a problem in our own labs, but also in resource-limited labs around the world. And if we were going to help the world use biotechnology to benefit society, we needed a better way to procure reagents and keep our projects moving.

By partnering with scientist-owned companies in Africa, Latin America, and elsewhere, we provide researchers with tools and services quickly, at a fair price, and with the specialised local support they need to do their best science. We use our network of partners and suppliers to meet this under-served “long tail” of the biotechnology market which demands expertise in agile, international logistics and business across borders in a highly regulated sector.

We also build local manufacturing capacity to further decrease costs and support skilled scientists to grow the local research and bio-entrepreneurial ecosystem through internships, training, partnerships and technical support. Following the establishment of a pilot manufacturing and sales partnership in Cameroon, Beneficial Bio is currently recruiting at a full time position, an Operations Support Officer based in Cameroon to support daily operations activities of the company.
