The SUNY Levin Institute has partnered with Springboard Enperprises to showcase 12 promising entrepreneurs on October 24 in New York City. The businesswomen are all leading startup companies in the technology sector.
The showcase is a rare opportunity for backers, attendees and entrepreneurs alike. Unlike traditional business plan showcases, the October event has preselected highly skilled, professionally advised participants and all women are managing existing operations with tangible results. The women’s companies are seeking investments of financial and human capital to scale.
Some concentrations in the technology industry that will be presented include digital media, payments and business-to-business services and products.
The presenting companies are previously unseen by venture capitalists and angel investors. The Levin Institute’s partnership with Springboard Enterprises promotes a major level of backing toward the selected womens’ companies. Each company is assigned a “personal advisory team” to prepare the leaders for complex analysis during the showcase.
Springboard Enterprises is a familiar face in the startup environment. The organization brings together entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts to build great women-led businesses. The 500 women-led companies selected for the Springboard accelerator program have raised more than $5.5 billion, including 10 IPOs and legions of high value M&As. Successful backings include Constant Contact, ZipCar, iRobot and hundreds of others, some that have since been acquired by larger firms.
