Realizing that entrepreneurship is a key ingredient in economic development, states and localities continue to support programs that assist bioscience businesses and capitalize on the regional presence of universities and/or federal laboratories.
With this fact in mind, Peter M. Pellerito, a senior policy consultant at BIO, and I recently collaborated on a report that investigates what specific steps have been taken across the United States as a means of attracting bioscience companies and expanding job opportunities.
The three areas we looked at were:
- State Legislative Strategies
- Supporting Bioscience Industry with Venture Capital and Discovery Funds
- Incubators and Economic Development Centers
This report was the third and final installment of a series on workforce development strategies.
