About the event
On Thursday evening, October 10, 2019 NIMBLE hosted a networking reception and awards ceremony highlighting selected female leaders in innovation, who are making positive cultural and societal impact or breaking barriers in traditionally male-dominated industries. Leaders were selected from dozens of nominations.
Guests were inspired by the phenomenal women from across the country honored for designing 3D bio-printed organs, revolutionizing the way traumatic brain injuries are diagnosed, pioneering edible bioplastics substitutes, fostering open innovation, transforming the way people interact with museums, turning moonshots into earthshots and more.
VIPs in attendance enjoyed wines in the top 1% globally from O'Brien Estate Winery and a beautiful flute performance by the award-winning and world-renowned Ray Furuta. Guests had the unique opportunity at the reception to network with these trailblazers and other Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley executives (and beyond!) as well as provide feedback to young, aspiring entrepreneurs showcasing their own innovations. This was an incredible, rare chance to enable your daughters and sons to be inspired and network with industry movers and shakers in a small venue (limited to 100 attendees).
National Institute for Mentoring Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs (NIMBLE) is a 501(3)(c) corporation with a dual mission: 1) fill the educational gap for socio-cognitive skills, what we call the nimble mindset of innovative problem-solving, empathy and inclusiveness, a necessity for positive societal change and success in the 21st century and 2) broaden access to mentoring and education for entrepreneurs and emerging leaders, as young as high school age.
