For Peggy Evanich, a program designed to get more female leadership in male-dominated tech businesses came right on time for her to start a company developing small satellites.

Evanich was among more than 50 women to participate in last year’s Empowering Women in Technology Startups, sponsored by the University of Florida Office of Technology Licensing, UF TechConnect and the Florida Innovation Hub.

The free, nine-week eWITS program starts again in September. Information sessions will be held from 3-5 p.m. Tuesday and Aug. 27 at the Hub, 747 SW Second Ave. Read more here.
