2018 Women Tech Founders Awards Night



SpringFour was excited to attend the Women Tech Founders Awards night on November 8th.  The event gathered together the leading women in the tech ecosystem, and their supporters, to celebrate success, leadership, and innovation, and there was great energy in the room.

The awards were “created to equalize the image of power in technology and leadership, while creating an army of role models for the next generation. The role models we want our daughters and their daughters to see.” This was evident in the stories shared by women about women-led startups.  Not only were the awards a great place to create community, but we were also there to support SpringFour’s Co-Founder & CEO, Rochelle Gorey, who was recognized as a finalist in the Social Impact category. Every nominee in the diverse categories celebrating woman founders were impressive. The Award categories covered a broad range of sectors including among others: Corporate Tech Leader, Lifestyle, Investor in Women, Health & Biotech and Fintech.

Rochelle was nominated in the company of so many other great women, but most importantly for SpringFour, in a category that is at the foundation of our company. While our impacts have been well documented, and we are proud of each one, at the heart of it all is improving the financial lives of people across the country. Creating impact for millions of individuals and families, enabling them to achieve financial health, and helping their communities prosper.

The Awards night was a celebration of women in a field that is often dominated by men. It highlighted the importance and power of diversity and equality in innovation. We were honored to be a part of it and are extremely proud of Rochelle’s recognition as a leader in this space. And we thank our partner and mentor BMO Harris Bank for nominating Rochelle.
