Genentech

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Biotech company Genentech has been developing new drugs--from insulin to treatments for breast cancer--for decades, but now it’s working on developing new scientists as well. It provided the funds for a new $7.8 million, 6,900-square-foot building in its hometown of South San Francisco to improve the science curriculum of students in the district. Called the Science Garage, the building, which opened this year, offers high school students a chance to interact with state-of-the-art equipment to get them excited about STEM. The project is just one part of a Genentech initiative called Futurelab, which is designed to give back to the local community by supporting STEM education throughout the school system.
