Attend Women In Bio’s 6th Annual ‘Lobster Pot’ Pitch Event Featuring Women-Led Innovative Life Science Startups
Join Women In Bio Boston on March 26 in Cambridge’s Broad Institute for the 6th Annual Boston 'Lobster Pot,’ our most popular event of the year. Learn how to pitch to investors more effectively, check out some exciting life science startups and network with some of Greater Boston’s leading women in the life sciences. 
This pitch event will be "shark tank style," with each executive delivering their best fundraising pitch to VCs and the audience. Investors will provide feedback on the pitch and comment on the ideas presented while the audience will have the opportunity to rate each pitch as well. 

What better way to honor Women’s History Month than to celebrate powerful women in the life sciences?  So whether you are starting your own company, raising money, or just want to celebrate successful women, this is one event that you can’t afford to miss.
