This week, Greater Boston will be putting its global leadership in biotech innovation on display, as over 16,000 people from 74 countries descend on Boston for the 2018 BIO International Convention. Through a combination of our highly educated workforce, a vital venture capital presence, and a strong public-private sector partnership, Greater Boston has become the place where biotechs from around the world want to put down stakes. But this growth comes with challenges – challenges that if not met could begin to stunt this enviable growth.
In a recent op-ed published in The Boston Globe, our CEO Dr. Jeffrey Leiden and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh discuss the importance of investing in Boston’s next-generation workforce to build a pipeline of talent to meet the demands of our growing innovation ecosystem.
