MIN #115 was our 5th Annual Women Founders Event that kicked off #WeBOSWeek on October 15th. The event was sponsored by Boston Scientific and the supporting sponsor was Brownmed. Before the event, Brownmed hosted an open house where they showcased some of their diverse products addressing medical issues. The turnout for MIN #115 was fantastic, with over 200 attendees and innovative products from women-founded companies in the digital health and medical and combination device fields.
Our first event in Natick was a complete success hosted by The Center for Arts Natick (TCAN)! So many people came out to support the local products that showcased!
