    Now in its fifth year in Miami, the Babson College Women Innovating Now (WIN) Lab aims to promote women in technology and entrepreneurship, areas where they remain woefully underrepresented. First launched in Boston in 2013, the WIN Lab was created in response to studies that, at the time, showed just 13% of business incubator seats were held by women, and less than 20% of angel investment, and 3% of venture capital, was going to companies with female CEOs.

    Six years later, data around venture funding has shown little change.
