Webinar: Female Founders – Encouraging, Developing and Commercialising Talent
Thursday 4th February (Part of the LSX World Congress)
11:00 – 12:00 BST

Statistics of representation on boards, the imbalance of investment into female entrepreneurs and the wider gender imbalance in life sciences and healthcare businesses shows we still have a long way to go.

Women’s health is considered by some as a niche, when it is anything but. Too often, lip service can be paid to the cause without effective action, and the importance of business networks, mentorship and thought leadership in tackling the issue of gender cannot be underestimated.

Inspiring female founders discuss the challenges they have faced in building their life science and healthcare businesses, raising capital in a male-dominated industry, and what more can and should be done to expedite growth and equality in female entrepreneurship and leadership in life sciences. Importantly, how can the wider industry, and the men within, best play their part and make a true and meaningful difference.
