Entrepreneurial Thinking Shifts the World

Springboard @ $5B and still counting

I’m on my way to the Springboard interview panels in San Francisco. Springboard was created 10 years ago by a group of women seeking solutions to the issue that women, with significant emerging start-ups, weren’t getting in front of venture capitalists. I’m proud to say I was one of those Springboard founders seeking a solution. Over the years, Springboard has networked emerging women entrepreneurs and created investment forums to pitch to top VCs. It is arguably the most successful of the venture forums worldwide. And over $5billion have been invested in women led companies with top returns to investors. I’ll add more on the outcomes on my next break–Money in is important, but the stunning returns is what keeps angels and VC’s coming back.
