8 Women Founders on Building Their Startups in Podcasts

Posted on Friday, Jun 23rd 2017

Entrepreneurs, especially woman entrepreneurs, looking for some inspirational and informative startup founders to share their unique perspectives and lessons learned, will find several success stories worth following in this selection of 30-minute podcasts.

Therese Tucker, Founder and CEO of BlackLine, is a very successful female entrepreneur who followed our core philosophy of bootstrap first, raise money later. When I first met her in 2009, her company was in the $10 million revenue range. Subsequently, it has continued to grow at 50% CAGR year over year, and Therese raised private equity funding in 2013 to take liquidity for herself and her team. The company has since gone public at a Unicorn valuation.

Stephanie Leffler, CEO of OneSpace, has done a prior successful, bootstrapped venture from St. Louis and exited it. This time round, she has bootstrapped to about $350k in revenue and then raised venture capital from Highland Capital and others. Stephanie is a damn compelling entrepreneur.
