Immigrant Entrepreneurs of LabCentral & BioLabs Continuing to Make America Great

Johannes Fruehauf, physician scientist, immigrant entrepreneur, and proud father of three American children speaks out in a STATNews First Opinion piece. "As a German and as a student of history, I feel especially attuned and alarmed...if the anti-immigration rhetoric goes unchecked, unfiltered, and increasingly accepted, and is heard by entrepreneurs around the globe, I'm worried they will stay home or go elsewhere, and America will lose its competitive edge — along with its moral high ground. Immigration is good for business, good for our communities, and good for our country. It's the essence of the American dream and spirit.

It's the right and smart thing to do."

On May 4, 2017, the Immigrant Learning Center named Johannes Fruehauf, MD, PhD, Immigrant Entrepreneur of the Year in Life Sciences. Johannes is founder, president and CEO of BioLabs Cambridge and the BioLabs network. BioLabs builds and operates premium co-working laboratory facilities around the country for science-based startups.

The innovation and ingenuity of those [LabCentral] entrepreneurs created over 700 new direct jobs, and that typically translates into five to six times more indirect jobs.
