Women's Health Innovation Summit USA The Westin Copley Place, Boston, Boston

Now entering its fifth year, the Women’s Health Innovation Summit USA has evolved significantly since the first convening. Having grown from 99 attendees in 2019 to just over 530 in 2022, WHIS USA has become the largest industry-leading platform that connects pharma, biotech, medical device companies, start-ups, investors, payers, researchers, and HCPs as they drive innovation, investment, research, and partnerships to improve health outcomes for women worldwide.

As the industry evolves, so does the Women’s Health Innovation Summit USA. Join us in Boston in September 2023 as we remain true to this, by committing to increasing the number of opportunities available to attendees, continuing to expanding the program content, and striving to connect more stakeholders than ever before.

You’re propelling the industry. We’re providing the platform.

The Innovation Showcase is a unique opportunity for emerging companies with a disruptive technology, product, or service to present in front of the industry’s most influential partners, investors, and decision makers.

Split across two days and focused on early-stage funding and later-stage funding, 24 start-up finalists, hand-picked by our Selection Committee, will spotlight their innovation, highlight their achievements, and gain industry exposure.

This year, we’re introducing prize bundles for the two winners, as well as an intimate drinks reception for all applicants who attend the summit.
