Recruitment for Life Sciences Start-Ups & the Challenge of Millennials

One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs and founders looking to grow their early-stage life science companies can be finding, recruiting and keeping the best talent. As a founder you need to fundraise, strengthen the science and technology behind your innovation, and take care of the health and well-being of your team and yourself. A wrong hire, in the best-case scenario, could set your company back months. Conversely, a good one could accelerate growth, improve team morale and improve your investment profile.
