Diversifying Your Talent

Growing and diversifying the pipeline of early talent.

Employment in the Massachusetts biopharma industry has grown 110% in the last 15 years and projections show jobs continuing to grow by 5-10% a year in the future. The industry must identify and invest in new talent pipelines to meet this need.

Project Onramp is a tool for Massachusetts life science companies to ensure they tap a local source of diverse talent as they grow. Interns not only mean more people power for your organization, they bring a fresh perspective to your work and offer existing employees an opportunity to serve as mentors.

Filling some of your available internships through Project Onramp is an investment in our industry’s future.
