Springboard is unique in my experience as a blossoming and ultimately highly successful venture-backed high tech CEO. Many groups try to provide coaching and pitch venues. Springboard is a cut above. Their bootcamp is intensive, on point, and constructive in a way that most coaching "opportunities" are not. That the organization focuses on women-led organizations in a overwhelmingly male space enables unique opportunities to be inspired and learn from those who are like you (and there are so very few in that category....). My only regret is that it is often terribly hard to find the money and time to be involved on an ongoing basis as much as I would like while building a thriving start-up turned second stage company.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Helping me become more professional as the "face" of my organization. Their follow-up is nothing short of phenomenal. Transition coaching was an unexpected blessing.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
