About WISE:

The Women’s Interdisciplinary Society of Entrepreneurship (WISE) is a student-led group at Northeastern University dedicated to helping women develop an innovative mindset through interactive workshops, a thought-incubator, and mentorship pairings.

Only 5% of venture capital funding goes to women founded companies, and there are more men named James leading Fortune 500 companies than women leading Fortune 500 companies. WISE was created to change those statistics! We believe that by showcasing entrepreneurial thinking in all fields and industries, more women will be encouraged to pursue entrepreneurship. With a strong sense of community and a diverse set of programs, the WISE women are hoping to empower others who are interested in starting a company or applying an innovative mindset to whatever they pursue in the future.
