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

    As a tech entrepreneur flying in from Miami to learn as much as possible from the speakers and mentors, they exceeded every expectation I had for inspiration and practical advice. In short, I was blown away.

    Here are some of the gems I’m taking home with me:
