    Description:

    Created by the Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) at Babson College, the Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab is a sector-agnostic accelerator focused on female entrepreneurs. The WIN Lab has been designated as one of the top two specialty programs for Excellence in Entrepreneurship Education by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship; earned BostInno's designation as one of Boston's '50 on Fire' innovators and visionaries; and was honored by the Rosoff Awards for diversity. WIN Lab Boston is open to current Babson College undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumnae. In partnership with the City of Boston's Women on Main initiative, the program also offers five tuition-free fellowships to Boston-based entrepreneurs. WIN Lab Miami is open to any woman entrepreneur who is ready to build a successful business. Weekly meetings for WIN Miami occur one evening each week at the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) Miami, located at the University of Miami Life Science & Technology Park in Overtown.
