Loeb Boathouse, NYC

Park Drive North, E 72nd St

Springboard Gala - Save the Date - October 25, 2022

Springboard is excited to announce that we will be hosting our 14th Gala celebrating women entrepreneurs and our community at the Loeb Boathouse on October 25, 2022!  After the pandemic-induced two-year hiatus, it will be great to see everyone in person. The Gala dinner and cocktail hour reception is an opportunity for Springboard to honor women entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors who we admire for their work supporting women-led businesses and fundraise for our not-for-profit organization.

Honors are bestowed on visionary leaders whose actions and impact serve to advance entrepreneurship. Past honorees include: Christie Hefner, Muriel “Mickie” Siebert, Geraldine Laybourne, Maggie Wilderotter, Beth Comstock, Sallie Krawcheck, and Debra Walton. All are visionary women considered to be a source of wise counsel and who, through their leadership, actions and investments, serve as a beacon for those who follow an entrepreneurial pathway. 

The Gala is also an exciting opportunity to meet members of Springboard’s impressive network of 855+ women entrepreneurs who have led 27 IPOs and generated over $36B in value. We will also be joined by members of Springboard’s vast network of advisors, supporters and investors that have been contributing to the success of Springboard and our entrepreneurs over our 22 years. 


There are many ways to demonstrate your support of women’s entrepreneurship and our 501c3 not for profit organization.
