The Origins of BioCrossroads
David Johnson, president and CEO of BioCrossroads, offers insight into the mission and vision for this statewide Life Sciences initiative.
One of the Nation's Top Four Life Sciences Leaders
There’s something about the Indianapolis Region that attracts life sciences innovators -- Colonel Eli Lilly, founding a medical wholesaler in the 1870s that’s grown into a global pharma/biotech leader. Bill Cook, taking The Cook Group from the spare bedroom of a Bloomington, Ind., apartment to a world medical manufacturing giant. In academia, cutting-edge research that’s mapped the human genome, and put Lance Armstrong back on his bike by pioneering cancer therapies. The list goes on ... and on ... and on.
Today, Indiana boasts a $69 billion biosciences sector and a spot among the nation’s top four states in number and concentration of life sciences jobs. The Indianapolis metro lands in the top ten regions in the U.S. for life sciences employment.
The jobs, investment and growth stem from our heritage of life sciences innovation -- a competitive advantage for growing businesses in biotech. Where will the next breakthrough happen? Let’s work together to find out.
Investing in Growth:
The BioCrossroads life sciences initiative and the state’s institutional investors have made nearly $140 million in dedicated venture capital available to Indiana’s growing life sciences companies over the last seven years.
Human Capital Connections:
A well-established, highly-skilled workforce serving the state’s existing life sciences industry gets stronger every year as top-notch academic programs (including the nation’s second-largest medical school) produce new graduates.

“A lot of the reason we chose Indianapolis is there’s tremendous access to local universities. For example, the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Purdue University offer great engineering talent. We’ve also interviewed people from IU’s Kelley School of Business to help boost our marketing presence as well.”
