StartGNV hosted a live ‘Ask me Anything’ on Thursday, March 25, 2021, to highlight women in Gainesville innovation.
The three panelists were UF Innovate | The Hub resident clients Helena Cowley, president and CEO of Oxidien Pharmaceuticals; Victoria Liu, founder of Byppo; and our very own Jennifer Harrell, interim assistant director of UF Innovate | The Hub. They answered questions ranging from how to launch a startup to the role of mentorship in innovation. They also touched on issues like the differences of being a woman in the industry and how to get more women involved.
On getting women involved, Harrell said, “Send them to the Collaboratory for Women Innovators, please! They have awesome mentorship, awesome programming, awesome networking. Own your awesome. I think that is so important for females to build each other up and help each other own our awesome. It’s all about confidence, I think.”StartGNV Hosts Women in Innovation AMA.
