Springboard Enterprises Gala Honors Industry Leaders and Women Entrepreneurs

Springboard Enterprises, a prominent organization with over two decades of experience in accelerating the growth of women-led companies, is set to host its 15th Annual Gala Celebration on October 24, 2023, at Nasdaq in Times Square. This event will combine professional elegance with joyful celebration, honoring the resilience, innovation, and determination displayed by women entrepreneurs who have transformed ideas into successful ventures.

Founded 23 years ago by Kay Koplovitz, Springboard’s mission remains focused on assisting women in raising and rising. The organization accelerates the growth of women-led companies by providing access to essential resources and a global network of entrepreneurs, advisors, and investors dedicated to building high-growth companies led by women in technology, healthcare, life sciences, and retail technology. Over its years of operation, Springboard has accelerated the growth of over 890 women-led companies, generating $39 billion in value, producing 10 unicorns, and witnessing 27 IPOs.

Kay Koplovitz expresses the increasing impact of women entrepreneurs, making bold moves, leading world-changing innovations, and delivering greater returns on investment than male-only-led companies. Springboard aims to continue celebrating these trailblazing women.

The annual gala is a key event that brings together a powerful community to celebrate top women entrepreneurs and investors. The event bestows honors such as Rising Star, Champion, Investor of the Year, and Entrepreneur of the Year upon visionary leaders whose actions contribute to the advancement of women entrepreneurs and society.

The 2023 honorees include Mette Dyhrberg, Founder & CEO of Mymee (Rising Star); Gina Bartasi, Founder and Executive Chairman of Kindbody (Champion Award); Erin Harkless Moore, Senior Director of Investments at Pivotal Ventures (Investor of the Year); and Julia Cheek, CEO & Founder of Everly Health, a Springboard alumna (Entrepreneur of the Year, sponsored by CVS Health).

The gala serves as a fundraising platform for the not-for-profit organization, reinforcing Springboard’s commitment to fostering a future where a woman’s impact knows no bounds. For registration details, interested individuals can contact Kat Casaretto, Associate Director, at
