A pitch competition & symposium to empower academic women entrepreneurs

Our Mission

Established in 2020, Equalize is a comprehensive program designed to take national action around the disparity of women academic inventors forming university startups. Equalize participants receive education, a field-specific mentor, and access to networks that drive new entrepreneurial connections. Equalize candidates can include faculty, postdocs, and grad students in STEM disciplines. In 2024, Equalize will also host an in-person experiential learning day at MassBio in Cambridge, MA.
