WIB Entrepreneur Center

Our Mission:

The WIB Entrepreneur Center is dedicated to supporting female founders from early start-up to later project stages of their life science companies through peer to peer interactions, educational programs, and resources as well as fundraising support.

Founders forums, peer groups, pitch events, and national webinars dedicated to the needs of early-stage and seed-stage startups, are just a few of the resources available to WIB’s Entrepreneur community.

Founders Forum - Calling All Female Founders! 

Join us by participating in WIB’s Founders Forums. The Founders Forum program is for first time and serial female founders/CEO’s of startup life science companies with IP and/or a business entity, including those seeking (dilutive and non-dilutive) funding. We focus on company, accountability, and support for companies one to 15 people in size. Once matched with other like-minded Founders, the small group of 10 to15 women would meet monthly for this year-round engagement. This programming opportunity is included in WIB’s membership benefit, and you must be a WIB member to participate. If you are interested in finding out more about the program or want to participate, please email Sibylle Hauser and Ginger Johnson at EntrepreneurCenter@womeninbio.org.
