Young Women In Bio-RTP is hosting an event in partnership with Alexandria LaunchLabs for girls in grades 8 through 12 to learn about entrepreneurship on November 6 from 3:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. During this event, girls will have the opportunity to hear from two females who have established a start-up or work with a start-up company in the RTP area, specifically focused in agriculture technology. Through these discussions, the girls will learn how an idea can turn into a business and what steps are needed to commercialize a product, service, or idea. The girls will also be able to tour the LaunchLabs incubator space to see where the action happens on a daily basis in the startup world. The event will end with a pizza party where the girls will get to chat with the female entrepreneurs and other female scientists to learn about different career paths in science and technology. This event is free but registration is required.


Please review the YWIB permission form located here.
