An Evening with Diane von Furstenberg & Extraordinary Female Founders

What a stellar evening!

All the stars seemed to align on April 3 in New York City, where GingerBread Capital (GBC) and BBG Ventures joined forces with the legendary Diane von Furstenberg to host a night of pitching, scintillating conversation, networking and (natch!) shopping for an invitation-only gathering of women entrepreneurs and investors.

Sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank, the evening also featured a panel discussion with female founders  Jean Brownhill of Sweeten; Shan-Lyn Ma of Zola; and Tina Sharkey of Brandless, who engaged with our very own Linnea Roberts in a lively conversation about the triumphs and challenges of starting and growing a business, raising capital and having a life. GBC Partner Ita Ekpoudom and Senior Associate Tadia James along with BBG’s Susan Lyne and Nisha Dua were also on hand, along with more than 100 other extraordinary women.
