Western University has announced the launch of the WE-Empower program. The program will help women innovators and underrepresented researchers transform their innovations into business opportunities. Participants will receive year-round mentorship as well as support and training in areas such as technology transfer, research commercialization, and entrepreneurship. The program will be led by WORLDiscoveries, the business development arm of a partnership between Western, Robarts Research Institute, and Lawson Health Research Institute. “The WE-Empower program provides an opportunity to support women and underrepresented groups in overcoming the barriers that prevent them from disclosing and commercializing their research or being an entrepreneur,” said WORLDiscoveries business development manager Saqib Sachani.
