About

Who’s Got Your Back? We Do.

Springboard is a highly-vetted expert network of innovators, investors and influencers who are dedicated to building high-growth technology-oriented companies led by women.

Our programs and initiatives are how we source, qualify, advise, showcase and support the most promising businesses seeking capital or partnerships for product development and expansion.

Our Accelerators are the Pipeline into the Springboard Expert Network.

Since 2000, 545 women entrepreneurs leading enterprise software, digital media, life science, and other technology facing companies have participated in our Accelerators.

The annual program combines high-value in-person events with strategic connections to surround talented women business builders with a ‘personal advisory team’  -   the relevant expertise and connections they need to grow “Big Businesses Starting Small.”

We’ve Been Doing This for More Than A Dozen Years… and Have The Track Record to Prove It.

Springboard portfolio companies raised $6.5 billion in financing, have created tens of thousands of new jobs, and generate billions of dollars in annual revenues.

83% of Springboard companies are still in business including 11 IPOs and many that are now the technology engines of Fortune 500 companies.

We Play Well With Others.

We are a non-profit 501c3 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, academic institutions, government offices and corporations to deliver results. We’re always on the look out for new partners so let us know if you are interested in a win-win collaboration.

“Springboard is a key part of our success since it is where we met up with the VC  firm that invested in the company early on. Without Springboard and the opportunity that it generated for us, we would not be where we are today!”
