The WIN Mentoring Program gives promising early stage life science ventures world class advice and assistance through their most critical stages. 

In this milestone-focused program, entrepreneurs are matched with an all-star team of seasoned volunteer advisors.  Entrepreneurs receive professional advice from teams of professionals with deep and diverse expertise in commercialization and business execution.  

WIN is modeled after two successful programs: MIT Venture Mentoring Service and Chicago Innovation Mentors and was adapted to the unique needs of the Washington Life Science and Global Health community.
