WIN unites two crucial things for us. First, the quality of an accelerator built by Babson is unquestionable. Second, they understand the intersection of being an entrepreneur and a woman, helping us leverage our unique qualities and circumstances to achieve as much growth as any other entrepreneur, no matter what their gender.”

The WIN Lab was exactly what we needed at the stage of our company. We entered with a prototype and just a handful of users and by the end of the 12-weeks with the support of the WIN staff, mentors, and coaches we exited the program with over 150+ users, a product roadmap for the next 6 months, and ready to raise a small round of funding to fuel our growth! The Babson network never fails to connect me to the right people we need and WIN was the catalyst for those connections.”
