Female founders in STEM: the role of universities in challenging underrepresentation

Women in Biotech returns to Scale Space, West London with a bang – collaborating this time with Imperial Enterprise Lab to celebrate 10 years of the WE Innovate programme. In 2014, Imperial launched the first women’s entrepreneurship competition at a UK university with one clear objective: to address the stark inequalities faced by female founders. Ten years on, the programme has supported over 500 women who have gone on to raise more than £37.5 million for their ventures.

We’ll hear from female founders – some who have benefited from the programme over the ten years – exploring their own journeys, challenges and successes. We’ll also discuss the vital role that Universities need to play in ensuring that we support and encourage female founders in STEM in order to increase the number of successfully funded female-led startups, assist in overcoming barriers and combat sector underrepresentation.

Join us for an inspirational panel and fantastic networking over a glass of something cold with a super supportive and friendly community. See you there!

Allyship is something we fully appreciate and this event is open to all.
