Join Women In Bio Boston for our Fifth Annual Lobster Pot Competition 2019, where local women-led startups make their pitch to leading Boston area women investors. What better way to mark Women’s History Month than to celebrate and learn from the life science entrepreneurs and investors who are making an impact. Four to six founders/CEOs will pitch our experienced panelists, who will share general wisdom, experience and insights that are valuable to all entrepreneurs and start-ups. This year’s event takes place at the Broad Institute and typically sells out, so register early!

Whether you are starting your own company, raising money, or just want to celebrate powerful women, this is one event you can’t afford to miss. And while we’re celebrating our women entrepreneurs, the event itself is open to all.

Sponsored by:
Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS 

Refreshments and beverages will be served.
