Leaders of five local, women-led companies participated in WIB-Chicago’s second annual “Start-Up Challenge” on September 27, 2016. Representatives from LanzaTech, 4D Healthware, MAG Optics, Novalex, and PraxiCut LLC gave dynamic presentations on their companies to our panel of experts, which provided insightful feedback on maximizing the effectiveness of the pitches.
Congratulations to Geeta Singh, co-founder and Chief Business Officer of MAG Optics, for winning the cash prize. Over 50 attendees enjoyed networking and supporting our local entrepreneurs. WIB-Chicago would like to thank our panel of experts, Alicia Loffler, Nancy Sullivan, Marta New, and Kapila Viges, for sharing their time and expertise.
WIB-Chicago also would like to thank our sponsors for this wonderful event, Horizon Pharma; Marshall, Gerstein & Borun; and MATTER, for your continued support of our organization and the local life sciences community.
