SpringBoard:New England 2005 Bootcamp

A CWE/Springboard Enterprise Bootcamp has been held each year since 2000. This years all-day event was a "...workshop designed to provide entrepreneurs with the tools they need to successfully develop and execute a venture capital presentation." For women thinking about starting their own business, this information is invaluable. For the second year, the CWE Bootcamp was held here in CSAIL at the Patil Seminar Room. Some of the women who organized the event this year are Amy Millman, President, Springboard Enterprises Ella Aglipay, Equity Financing Specialist, Center for Women & Enterprise Kim Marinucci, Principal, Winning Pitch Co. Rodney Brooks, Director of CSAIL welcomed the attendees with a few comments. Established in 1995, the Center for Women & Enterprise (CWE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping women start and grow their own businesses. Springboard Enterprise forums are designed to increase investment opportunities for women-led firms and to help women entrepreneurs navigate the equity markets. CWE's mission is ..."to empower women to become economically self-sufficient and prosperous through entrepreneurship." CSAIL outreach efforts to broaden Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence diversity in society across gender and racial boundaries continue to grow.
