Our current programs include:

Mentoring Circles

Mentoring Circles bring together small groups. Typically two to three mentors and three to four mentees are placed in groups (otherwise called circles) based on mutual areas of interest. Mentees set goals and work towards a plan that is reviewed consistently with their mentors. Members of each circle meet monthly for six months. An additional fee applies for mentees to join the MAPS program.


Pitch Competitions 

Pitch Competitions allow entrepreneurs to present their new ideas and products by delivering their best fundraising pitch to investors and an audience. Investors will provide feedback on the pitch and comment on the ideas presented, while the audience will also have the opportunity to rate each pitch.


Women In Bio is an organization of professionals committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship of all women in the life sciences.

WIB membership and events are inclusive of all who support our mission.
