Our very own CEO, Linda Rebrovick recently spoke at a monthly “Women’s Entrepreneur Coffee” held at the Nashville-based Entrepreneur Center. This informative series was created to discuss the formation and launch of high-growth women-led businesses. Linda focused on her career: From Intrapreneur to Entrepreneur. She shared her business experience and valuable business resources to a group of over 30 of Nashville’s women entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Linda specifically spoke about Golden Seeds and Springboard, two exceptional global organizations providing support to women worldwide as well as to our own Consensus Point. Golden Seeds, an investment firm, maintains a dedication to delivering above market returns through the empowerment of women entrepreneurs and the people who invest in them. Its angel network consisting of 250 men and women is the fourth largest in the US and was the third most active in terms of deals done in 2011. Linda works closely with Golden Seeds and is honored to have Golden Seeds member, Sandra Kresch, as a member of our Board. Golden Seeds has provided significant business expertise and a unique network.
Springboard is a company which helps women “build big businesses starting small.” Linda recently completed one of their popular programs, a bootcamp for start-up and early stage businesses. Over 500 women-led companies have gone through Springboard’s accelerator programs. These women have raised more than $5.6 billion in financing, have created tens of thousands of new jobs, and generate billions of dollars in annually in revenues. More than 80% of Springboard companies are still in business, including 10 IPOs and many that are now the technology engines of publicly traded companies.
With Forbes choosing Nashville as the eighth best city for growth in the US and the fifth most affordable city, the EC has been busier than ever. These coffees are only one of the great resources they provide. For information on the next coffee, go to http://entrepreneurcenter.com.
