What people are saying about Women’s Startup Lab:
We are thrilled to have the Women’s Startup Lab come to Draper University of Heroes, so our students can be inspired by successful and aspiring female entrepreneurs.
– Tim Draper, Draper Fisher Jurvetson
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the enthusiastic group of women. This is the closest I have seen to a true grass-roots organization. I have attended many women’s networking groups over the years, and yours is very unique in that it has a true vibe of collaboration and support, and the women are very impressive, each and every one of them.
