I take great pride in the women we’ve featured over the years. Before we decided the type of journalism we wanted Lioness to be about, long before we gave you breaking news, insights and updates on the latest female-led startup acquisitions, we just had a hunger to tell good stories about female entrepreneurs who were making noise and disrupting industries. The fact that they could be the next big thing was just a bonus.
Some of those startups (like most that launch) have closed, others have gone on to do fabulous things, but the women behind those companies … they have turned fantastic corners in their careers, companies and in startup land in general. Where one female founder is bold enough to venture, others have the opportunity to follow and that’s what helps to level the playing field.
We’ve often been the first news company to give many early-stage female entrepreneurs press coverage. It excites us when the rest of the world catches on to how amazing they are. This month is all about introducing you to female entrepreneurs who are on the verge of something fantastic. Stay awhile, click around and explore the women we know “got next.” And when they blow up, remember, you heard it here first.
Until next time …
Rock your day,
