Access transformative technologies

As a company, you want the best access to transformative technologies that can increase your efficiency, revenue and market share. And, to take advantage of new technologies, you want a company culture that embraces innovative thinking.

“Springboard entrepreneurs are literally changing the world through technical innovation. Springboard programs have created a dramatic shift in the way we think about women role models at the CEO level, reminding us the face of corporate leadership needs to be diverse, and that we each hold the power to effect change, whatever our context.”
— Debra Danielson, SVP M&A Strategy and Distinguished Engineer, CA Technologies

Our programs are tailored around your ideal industry focus and criteria, and developed for maximum corporate impact. Springboard helps you successfully incorporate innovation to solve your most pressing problems and create your largest opportunities.

“As health care becomes more consumer-focused, we look for innovative ways to use technology to personalize the consumer experience. Springboard is an amazing venue to interact with some of the brightest women entrepreneurs in life sciences and tech. We look forward to our annual meeting, where we not only get to hear enlightening presentations, but develop ongoing relationships with these inspiring leaders. As Aetna works to join individuals on their health care journey, we are pleased to join women entrepreneurs on their journey to building high-growth companies for an interconnected world.”
— Meg McCarthy, Executive Vice President, Operations and Technology, Aetna
