I have actually been following Springboard's Inc blog for a while now, so being able to see that same spirit in a book has been incredibly exciting. Great advice that offers different perspectives on various business concepts, and so refreshing to see all women authors. A must-read for entrepreneurs at any stage.

Springboard's support of female founders is more than admirable; it is an important tool to help any economy grow. Having been through their world class accelerator program I know first hand how valuable this organization is to anyone in business. Kay and the team forge friendships as well as nurture positive business relationships; I look forward to having these words of wisdom at my fingertips.

I both contributed to and purchased this book as a woman CEO and a member of the Springboard Enterprises accelerator, which is a fantastic network of women CEOs.  This is a great practical read from women who have been there, done that.  For new entrepreneurs, it's a playbook addressing hard issues faced by every start up CEO.  For experienced entrepreneurs who may be leading their own company for the first time, it's encouraging to get insight from the array of successful women that provided their input on topics ranging from funding to management to sales.  For those looking for connections, the book is literally a who's who of woman that are one Linked In request away from being part your network.
