Our Accelerators are the Pipeline into the Springboard Expert Network.

Since 2000, Springboard Enterprises has served as a resource hub of influencers, investors and innovators engaged in helping women build big businesses. Springboard sources, coaches, showcases and supports women-led growth companies seeking investment of financial and human capital for product development and expansion.

642 women-led companies have participated in Springboard’s accelerator programs; raising $7.4 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 13 IPOs, and many are the technology engines of publicly traded companies.

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 $7.4 billion in financing, have created tens of thousands of new jobs, and generate billions of dollars in annual revenues.

“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!”
