Women believe they are breaking through the glass ceiling in the workplace, but their achievements and contributions are not recognized equally with their male counterparts. In 2000, a colleague enrolled me in a Springboard Boot Camp and I met Amy Millman, Kay Koplewitz and Denise Brousseau, among many others. I had already raised capital for one business but it was a painful experience. Springboard surrounded me with exceptional people that invested time and effort to form and support my personal vision for success in business. Springboard introduced me to investors that funded other companies and other professionals that helped me develop my career in business and science. Through Springboard I have developed the entrepreneurial tools I need, a reality check on the world around me and brought forward my inventions and other peoples inventions to the public. The Springboard motto is Women, Capital, Connections. This is the heart of the organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
In 2000 I did not believe that I needed support. I was willing to go it alone. I was wrong. Springboard showed me a new template for women in business. Be yourself, Be Smart, Be Connected. They helped me show the merits of my ideas to the investment world
