More than 600 female entrepreneurs have shared their experiences with The Story Exchange, an ongoing research project with Babson College that hopes to gather 1,000 submissions. The goal is “to understand the needs of women business owners around the world while giving these often-overlooked entrepreneurs media exposure,” Colleen DeBaise, The Story Exchange’s director of digital media, writes on Huffington Post. “Once we’ve collected 1,000 stories, we’ll analyze the experiences of women when it comes to raising capital, generating revenue and juggling work and family. Our hope is that the findings will help policymakers, the financial industry and others better address women’s entrepreneurial needs.”
The list of The Story Exchange’s contributors can be accessed here. It includes Nancy Taylor, whose San Diego Science Alliance connects k-12 schools with scientists and mentors in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields. Carolyn Lanzetta created Plum Print, a business that preserves children’s artwork by digitizing it and transforming it into a book for parents to keep.
