Our Accelerators are the Pipeline into the Springboard Ecosystem
Springboard Enterprises is a highly-vetted global expert network of innovators, investors and influencers who are dedicated to building high-growth technology-oriented companies led by women. Our programs and proprietary screening process are how we source, qualify, advise, support, and showcase the most promising high-potential businesses seeking capital or partnerships for product development and expansion.
We’ve Been Doing This for 18 Years… and Have The Track Record to Prove It.
Since 2000, Springboard Enterprises, the annual program combines high-value in-person events with strategic connections to surround talented women-led business builders with a “personal advisory team” – the relevant expertise and relationships they need to build scalable and sustainable growth companies.
735 women-led companies have participated in Springboard’s accelerator programs; raising $8.7 billion, creating tens of thousands of new jobs, and generating billions of dollars in annual revenues. 81% of Springboard companies are still in business as independent or merged entities, including 17 IPOs, and many are the technology engines of publicly traded companies.
A record that is unmatched.
We Play Well With Others.
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based locally in the USA but acting globally to accelerate women entrepreneurs’ access to growth capital. We place great emphasis on collaborating with other business and entrepreneurial organizations and corporations to deliver results.
