The mission of MVPvets (MedTech and BioTech Veterans Program) is to assist and prepare transitioning military veterans for meaningful employment in life science companies. With new health applications and innovative consumer products being discovered and created on a daily basis, opportunities to support the science, engineering, technology or business functions of a life science organization are vast. MVPvets brings Veterans, Mentors and Companies together through live and virtual career-building endeavors.
Components of MVPvets include an online Collaborative Portal with mentor matching, job-matching, eLearning via the LifeCollaborative, news, blogs, and more. In addition to online features, MVPvets Partner Companies host on-site re-careering events where veterans participate in company specific tours to learn more about that life science company as well as interact with its team members, including their hiring managers. But, it’s really the role of mentors that enables the transitioning veteran to make the shift from serving our country to continuing that service through career avenues that directly support companies whose aim is to better the world around us.
Veterans never pay to participate in MVPvets. All costs associated with services and benefits are covered through the generous contributions of our partnering life science organizations.
MVPvets started as a collaborative venture between Abiomed and AdvaMed in 2012. In 2014, ZBglobal joined to bring professional skill building via eLearning (the LifeCollaborative) to the program.
