On Friday September 22nd, we had the privilege to present the SpringFour solution to top BMO Harris Bank executives. This was the culmination of the three-month partnership program in which SpringFour was one of six startups selected to participate. Read our blog about our inclusion in the program here.

We are proud to announce that we received third prize in the program, receiving $10,000.

See the article featuring the Program on Business Insider.

The program was a great experience for SpringFour, allowing us to engage deeply with our three mentors at BMO Harris. Each of our mentors were incredibly involved, believed in our mission, and worked hard with us to refine our value proposition, and how best we could potentially integrate with BMO Harris Bank.

Not only did we walk out of this experience with additional knowledge, but also great partners and a vision of future partnership with the Bank.

Midwest Women In Tech Awards

Midwest Women In Tech Awards

Midwest Women In Tech Awards

Standing among a room full of women doing great work and supporting each other was inspiring. It was the Women Tech Founders Midwest Women In Tech (MWitT) 2017 Awards night, and we were there because SpringFour’s Co-Founder and CEO, Rochelle Gorey was nominated in the Fintech category (A founder changing the financial services industry through innovation and technology).

The event celebrated Women in Tech, those who have paved the way and bring diversity to an industry that has long had far too few women top players. Each of the nominees in 12 different categories were personally nominated and then selected by a panel of judges. The nominees all met the following criteria:

– An individual that demonstrates excellence in tech leadership

– A champion for other women

– A contributor to the community

– An authentic and innovative leader in the tech ecosystem

The event was an amazing reflection of just how many smart, driven, innovative women there are working in tech in the Midwest. Showing this diversity and wealth of talented local women changes the way we think about the tech field. 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 for our daughters and their daughters to see.”

Hearing the stories behind these inspirational women makes all of us dream of the future that our daughters can have. Rochelle shows this in the way she leads, her character and her core beliefs in bringing financial health to everyone, and we are glad she is being recognized for it.

We had a great time getting to meet and chat with other women in the field, hearing inspirational stories, and even getting to meet the Mayor.

The organizers of the event wanted everyone to leave the evening feeling “ignited and inspired to change the world.” We did, and we are.
