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.

 

Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS is bringing together a panel of entrepreneurs and experts with the aim to provide you with insights on recruiting and retaining innovation talent, creating a balance between young professionals/researchers and seasoned team members and building a supportive and inclusive culture within the fast-paced high-pressure environment of a start-up. You will also hear about the unique challenge and opportunity posed by the millennial generation in an era of shifting currents in the global workforce.
