Ellen Brune of Boston Mountain Biotech Up for Prestigious Cartier Award
Ellen Brune, founder and CEO of IA client firm and UA startup Boston Mountain Biotech, is up for a prestigious international women's entrepreneur award.
Brune is a finalist, one of just 18 from all over the world and just two from the U.S., for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards.
Brune, 28, founded Innovate Arkansas client firm Boston Mountain Biotech to produce pharmaceutical proteins using a method she helped develop at the UA. She is one of 18 women in the world selected as finalists for the awards.
The Cartier Women's Initiative is an international business plan competition created in 2006 to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs, according to a UA news release. Brune, 28, is one of two women from the United States up for a Cartier award. She will compete in France in October for a prize package that includes $20,000 and a year of coaching in business development and marketing.
Good stuff. Good luck, and keep up the good work, Ellen.
