After the Storm, Start-Ups Abound

We believe that start-up ventures will continue to emerge–and thrive–in the face of the current pandemic.  In part this is because the start-up ecosystem is responding to problems that need to be solved, but also that the current environment offers significant amounts of private investment capital to entrepreneurs.

In referring to “start-ups” we do not mean an entrepreneur working out of her garage, but rather ventures with less than 10 years of operating history and often at the intersection of innovation and technology.  As we have noted in a previous post, many start-ups are a perfect environment for PhDs: such ventures harness advanced level research and project management skills while offering individuals potentially more room for personal growth within a fast-moving environment.

This week’s upload of start-up ventures is heavy in the bio-sciences and biotech but also includes fields such as financial and legal services, healthcare, and consumer product development.  A trove of opportunities is available on our SmartJobs site, so log in and learn more.

Finally, stay positive.
