Episode 9: Follow Her Lead: Amy Millman as a Pioneer for Women in Business
Special Guest: Amy Millman, President, Springboard Enterprises
This episode is about something we don’t have enough of in entrepreneurship: Women. The special guest is Amy Millman, President of Springboard Enterprises, a highly vetted expert network of innovators, investors and influencers who are dedicated to building high-growth technology oriented companies led by women. Amy has been tackling issues faced by women in business for more than 20 years. While she started her career as a lobbyist at Phillip Morris, it was during the Clinton Administration that she was asked to lead the National Women's Business Council, a position that placed her at the forefront of women in entrepreneurship. Listen as Amy talks about the challenges present for female entrepreneurs and how Springboard helps them overcome those challenges. She shares what she believes are the biggest obstacles women face and—believe it or not—the issues today are the same as they were in the 1990s. Amy has one simple piece of advice for all the entrepreneurs out there. Listen to see what it is. Stay tuned to play the week’s installment of “Kickstarter or Not?”
