    My company Piggybackr was one of 11 companies that emerged from AngelPad’s spring 2012 class. Female founders should apply – applications close this Sunday, July 22, 2012 so apply now!

    By Andrea Lo (Co-Founder & CEO, Piggybackr)

    AngelPad was started in 2010 by a group of ex-Googlers committed to helping technology companies succeed during some of their most formative periods pre-funding. Founder Thomas Korte had been angel investing for some time and wanted to get even more involved with his companies. In a few short years, AngelPad has climbed to be ranked the #4 global incubator by Forbes and has helped companies raise over $25 million in funding.

    5 Lessons Learned From A Day With 1000 Women Entrepreneurs

    By Thomas Korte (Founder & Managing Partner, AngelPad)

    I was invited this week to judge the Women 2.0 PITCH Competition. I blocked out the day with one goal: give a lot of feedback and advice to entrepreneurs. And I am glad I did.

    The conference was unlike any I have attended in recent years. 1000 women-tech entrepreneurs, many of them not from Silicon Valley, skipped Valentine’s Day to listen to the learnings, inspirational and success stories of fellow women entrepreneurs. 99% of the audience were women and Dave McClure, Naval Ravikant, Jeff Clavier and myself were the only men on stage.
