MassBioDrive is a next generation biotech accelerator designed to advance breakthrough science and provide opportunities to innovators from all parts of the life science ecosystem. Over the course of an intensive eight-week program, selected startups will participate in six business-focused curriculum modules taught by seasoned industry experts, partner with a small, dedicated group of mentors, and receive access to networking events, an end-of-program Demo Day to help grow visibility in the ecosystem, equity-free prizes, and 1:1 partnering meetings at MassBio’s bi-annual Partnering Week.
Before founding 1910, Jen worked at the intersection of life science, technology, and business. Prior roles include Management Consultant at Bain & Company, Director of Business Development at a health-tech startup (pre-seed to Series A), and drug discovery stints at Novartis and Eli Lilly. During her Ph.D. research, Jen was an HHMI Predoctoral Fellow at the medical schools of Tufts University and Harvard University.
