Accelerating Female Led Innovation with Ashley Lucas: HTVNC17 Speaker Spotlight

The HealthTech Venture Network is proud to announce Ashley Lucas – director of the Boston Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab – to our 2017 Conference line up, as a speaker on “How Female Tech Founders Can Leverage Growth Resources.” Held from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., this moderated panel seeks to educate aspiring and current entrepreneurs on the nuances of navigating and leveraging growth resources. Learn where to start and how to catalyze your startup.

Lucas refers to herself as a “recovering entrepreneur” after having spent the last nine years working in the startup space, both as a founder and as her last company’s first hire after the CEO.

Before her current role as director of the WIN Lab, Lucas co-led a startup called The Welcoming Committee – a national events and travel company – where she helped grow a Boston-based community of 2,000 people into a membership base of 35,000 across ten cities.

Now at Babson College’s WIN Lab, an eight-month accelerator program designed specifically for growth-stage women entrepreneurs, Lucas has the opportunity to help other women scale their businesses and build a network that will help them achieve their goals. She began understanding the importance of supporting female founders after she received her MBA and began navigating the challenging landscape of accelerators and fundraising in Boston. Now, her passion in helping female founders succeed only continues to build as she works with hundreds of women CEOs, mentors and investors.
