WIB-Greater Boston: Sixth Annual Lobster Pot Pitch Event

What better way to honor Women’s History Month than to celebrate powerful women in the life sciences? Come to WIB-Greater Boston’s famous 6th Annual Lobster Pot.

As the name suggests, this event will be in the “shark tank style,” with each fundraising executive pitching to investors and the audience. The investors will provide feedback on the pitch and comment on the ideas presented. Join us on March 25, 2021, to learn how to pitch to investors more effectively, and to check out some exciting NewCos in the life sciences space.

So whether you are starting your own company, raising money, or just want to celebrate powerful women, this is one event that you can’t afford to miss.
