Joan Lyman shares her $600 million dollar acquisition story today in Chile

The Chilean entrepreneur community is proud to welcome Katie Gage, Director of Programming at Springboard Enterprises; and Joan Lyman, Partner at LMG Corp. They will be the special guests at today’s Girls in Tech Chile meetup. Women @the Frontier is also supporting this meetup.

Joan Lyman will be sharing her experience as a serial entrepreneur and Dell’s recent acquisition of her company, formerly Secureworks, for $600 million USD.  Dell SecureWorks focuses exclusively on security services to protect thousands of customers around the world.

Based in my hometown of Washington, DC, Springboard Enterprises is an influential and highly regarded international accelerator for women led companies.

Over 500 women-led companies have gone through Springboard’s accelerator programs; they have raised more than $5.6 billion in financing, have created tens of thousands of new jobs, and generate billions of dollars in annual revenues. More than 80% of Springboard companies are still in business, including 10 IPOs and many that are now the technology engines of publicly traded companies. Later this year Springboard Enterprises is going to be doing some really cool stuff to assist with the continued growth and development of women entrepreneurs in Chile.
