Women in Bio (WIB) is about empowerment of women in the field of life sciences. We aim to support the cause of women in academics through research grants, scholarships, academic excellence awards, recognition of Indian women who contribute to life sciences industry.
WIB members, currently about 50, also counsel women on their business plans and financial models, value adding right through the entire process of preparing the business plans to actual product launch. This also includes helping them develop marketing and branding strategies all the way to connecting them with the funding organisations.
Soon, we plan to create a women's forum and industry voice to represent industry issues to governmental and nodal agencies such as Ministry of Health and Pharmaceutical and Biotech Industries.
The turning point in my life would be the day I quit my job I learnt for the first time on how to let go my fears completely. Thus began my entrepreneurial journey with a lot of self-belief.
