2020 FemSTEM Event


Date and Location Coming soon!

Our FemSTEM event aims to inspire, engage and celebrate female entrepreneurs.

Our goal at H2i is to grow a local culture, practice and infrastructure to translate discoveries and ideas into problem solving designs, services and product by connecting people with mentors, resources, researchers, key opinion leaders and professionals to help them translate, defuse and scale discoveries. Using this model, we are currently helping over 115 ventures commercialize their health innovations. At H2i we want to focus on fostering a diverse and inclusive community and commit to supporting women in STEM who want to create their own business.

All are welcome to join: students, faculty, staff, alumni & members of the H2i community.

Our event will begin with a panel session celebrating female entrepreneurs and learning about their journeys and experiences in commercializing in the health care sector. We’ll dive into how and why they got started and address any questions from the audience.

Following this session, we will run a hands-on workshop where attendees will learn how to ideate, create, optimize and communicate a new business idea using H2i’s 10-point system moderated by Paul Santerre. You will work in groups, facilitated by a table lead, panelists, H2i entrepreneurs and mentors, to create a pitch deck. This hands-on event will give you insights into entrepreneurial thinking and planning to help guide you through your own business ideas. Some ideas will be provided but attendees can also come with their own or brainstorm new ideas with their group.

2:00-3:00pm Panel
3:00-3:30pm Presentation from Paul Santerre on all things Entrepreneurship
3:30-5:00pm Hands on workshop

Food and refreshments will be provided
