Women & Science Entrepreneurship Fund
Building on the pioneering Women & Science Initiative, the Women & Science Entrepreneurship Fund (WEF) is designed to help ensure that every Rockefeller scientist who wants to realize the therapeutic potential of her discoveries has the tools, support, and knowledge to do so. The fund will also amplify the potential of Rockefeller’s unique translational programs to reap therapeutic rewards.
The Women & Science Entrepreneurship Fund aims to:
- Increase the participation of women in Rockefeller’s translational ecosystem through a competitive grants program for projects headed by women
- Host a WEF Speaker Series with women leaders in biotechnology, pharma, and venture capital firm to advise Rockefeller scientists on careers beyond the bench
- Build a network of women scientists, biotech innovators, and industry leaders who can mentor future women investigators
- Establish Rockefeller as the place where women scientists at all levels receive best-in-practice entrepreneurship training
