Erica Zahka (left) took top honors in the Boston WIN (Women Innovating Now) Lab Finale in May. Erica’s startup, Own The Boardroom, is an “on-demand business mentor and professional closet” for men and women. Erica was supported by WIN Lab coach Nettie Nitzberg (right) of West5 Consulting. Erica emails, “WIN Lab was an incredibly valuable experience, providing guidance, community, and access to prominent men and women in the Boston business ecosystem. The best part? The WIN cohort may last eight months, but the connections are forever. Having a community to tap into is invaluable for anyone starting a business.”
