13 Years, 24 Accelerator Programs for High Growth Women-Led Companies
About the Program
In an age of information overload where getting in front of the right investors and potential strategic partners is harder than ever, where do you go to find the support you need to build the next iRobot, Zipcar, Constant Contact, or Achillion?
We know how to help investment-ready women-led companies raise capital to scale BIG.
Springboard's forum programs are designed to support, promote and showcase investment-ready, high-growth companies led by women. And after 13 years of presenting over 500 businesses that have raised over $5.6B in capital, we've figured out the secret to overcoming the hurdles startups face when trying to scale. It's about building relationships, not just about raising capital. Click here to learn more about our how our forum programs work.
