***Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to postpone this event.  Please stay tuned for the new date to be announced.

Have you ever wondered what a biotechnology company startup pitch sounds like? How do brand-new companies tell their stories, communicate their science, and raise capital? Please join Young Women In Bio for a special event hosted at Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS. Attendees will have the opportunity to sit in the investor’s seat and listen to pitches from five phenomenal female biotech startup company CEOs. Industry mentors will work with you in small groups to discuss and evaluate each pitch presentation, and YOU will get to decide which companies you would invest in. A panel discussion about science entrepreneurship will follow and dinner will be provided.
