Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives (MBI)
“The Internship Challenge is one of the best programs to support workforce development and early stage life and health sciences companies. At the Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives (MBI) in Worcester, our companies utilize the program to train students in the field with the hope of hiring them after graduation. The win-win program provides early stage companies with needed operating capital and students with direct work experience.”
– Jon Weaver, Chief Operating Officer, MBI (2018)
Since the program’s inception, a total of 28 current and former MBI companies have together hosted nearly 180 interns.
Enable Life Sciences, an MBI company offering customized Innovation Management and R&D Project Management services, has hosted six interns through the program since 2016.
