WELLESLEY, Mass., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Babson College's Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab Miami is set to host its first-ever Demo Night on Thursday, October 27, 2016.
Building on Babson's leadership in advancing women-led entrepreneurship, the Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson launched the WIN Lab in Boston in October 2013 as a first-of-its-kind program designed to help women entrepreneurs launch successful businesses.
This groundbreaking accelerator program expanded to Miami in early 2016 with a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
In September, Babson announced the 24 women entrepreneurs that had been selected to participate in the 2016-17 program in Miami. This Thursday, the community is invited to Demo Night to see them in action as they showcase their diverse set of companies and products.
Attendees will be given the opportunity to vote for the 'fan favorite', witness five WIN Lab Miami entrepreneurs pitch live for prizes, and network with each of the founders.
