About the speakers:


Nathalie Molina Niño, CEO of BRAVA Investments

Nathalie Molina Niño is the CEO of BRAVA Investments and the author of LEAPFROG, The New Revolution for Women Entrepreneurs (Tarcher Perigee, a Penguin Random imprint). She is committed to delivering returns to investors while making a catalytic impact on women in the world. A technologist and coder by training, Nathalie is a consummate entrepreneur, and a storyteller at heart.

Prior to launching BRAVA, Nathalie led the launch of SELF MADE, the company, mobile app, learning platform and NY Times Best Selling book by Telemundo’s former Entertainment president, Nely Galan. In 2015, Nathalie stepped in as interim Chief Revenue Officer of PowerToFly, a startup aimed at closing the gender gap in tech. And in 2012, while at Columbia University, Molina Niño co-founded Entrepreneurs@Athena at the Athena Center for Leadership studies of Barnard College, with the mission of leveling the playing field for women entrepreneurs. Nathalie launched her first tech startup at the age of 20.

Prior to Athena, Molina Niño was involved in launching and growing a multinational business with Lionbridge (NASDAQ: LIOX) into a $100M operation in 30+ countries. At Lionbridge she helped lead the growth of its largest business from approx $5M in 2003 to nearly $100M in 2009, including the inception of the strategic relationship with Microsoft Bing.

Molina Niño has advised industry leaders in both the for- and non-profit sector ranging from multinationals (Disney, Microsoft, MTV, The Discovery Channel, Mattel), early stage startups (Cranium, Onvia) and non-profits (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, World Affairs Council, Seattle International Film Festival, Athena). She writes and is quoted widely in the media, from best-selling books like Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Workweek to diverse media outlets ranging from Bitch Magazine to Forbes, Time Inc and CNN Money.

As New York City & State’s Corporate Social Responsibility Honoree, Nathalie has been recognized for her exceptional leadership in educating women founders. Keith Ferrazzi called her a “super-connector” in his updated best-selling classic, Never Eat Alone. Nathalie is the “fuel core of a network that makes it easy for her to tap the resources to get stuff done, and done quickly.”
