The Life Science Track focuses on: Small Molecule Therapeutics, Biologicals, Companion Diagnostics, Drug Delivery Devices, Genomics, Personalized Medicine, and more.

 What People Are Saying

“Thank you for creating Springboard and your feedback throughout the boot camp! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting other women tackling similar challenges. It gets very lonely leading a vision and devoting oneself to the company 200%! I enjoyed bonding with others who get it. So grateful to be a part of this year's Springboard class!” -Stella Sarraf, Founder & CEO Amydis - Health Innovation Hub 2016

“Such an amazing, enriching, fantastic experience. You are a gem! And your staff is outstanding! And the Team you assembled was superlative!” -Joyce Lonergan, Co-Founder & CEO Mellitus - Health Innovation Hub 2016
