Bush Institute.

Stephanie Lampkin: The ambitious lady started Blendoor, that serves as a platform for job search. The prime point of this service is its unbiased manner of presenting information to the recruiters, in a way making a blind-job-match. It hides the identification details of the job seekers, thereby eliminating favoritism of any sort and portraying the profiles with particulars of qualifications, abilities and skills. The mechanism is majorly employed in Silicon Valley but is gaining popularity worldwide.

AdmitSee provides an unobstructed and extensive stage that manifests detailed college application process that suits students’ and parents’ understanding. AdmitSee had been listed amidst the top ten entrepreneurial endeavors under 2016 Amplify Women’s Pitch Night Competition.

Ishveen Anand: When all the fields have presence of women, why not sports? The Indian origin and British inhabitant entrepreneur strived a significant change in the sports sponsorship industry by way of OpenSponsorship, the company that offers a perfect place for athletes, sponsors and related work groups to seek the inadequately deployed market of sports sponsorships. The idea clinched her mind after working with and gaining experience from a sports agency in India, that paved way to her entrepreneurial desire.

Limitless diversity prevails that offers and requires various sets of flairs, you just need to understand your type and fit in. There have been hidden talents that the most inspiring women, who are performing well and making their own ways to success, have unfolded. However, there still lie platitudes to be opened out- after all, women are not the jellyfishes surviving without brains.
