How Lisa is building a better working world

“The ripple effect of supporting women founders is endless.

With their own gumption and support from the Winning Women program, women entrepreneurs have learned not to set artificial limits on what’s possible. Instead, they are thinking big, pushing through and forging ahead, believing in the potential of their ideas and sticking with them until they secure the resources they need to make a market. Community amplifies their successes while encouraging more potential women founders to launch. It reinforces lessons learned while reducing the cost of failure in both time and treasure.

Through their success these women entrepreneurs create lasting legacies of growth, increased prosperity and stronger communities throughout the world.

With this program we are changing people’s lives. It is a privilege to serve these entrepreneurs and a wonder to see what they accomplish.”
