Our goal at H2i is to grow a local culture, practice and infrastructure for mobilizing research by connecting people with mentors, resources, researchers, key opinion leaders and professionals to help them translate, defuse and scale discoveries. Using this model we are currently helping over 90 ventures commercialize their health innovations. But of these 90 ventures less than 20% are founded or co-founded by a women. At H2i we want to focus on fostering a diverse and inclusive community and commit to supporting women in STEM who want to create their own business.
