Lauren Hall, CEO and Founder of Australia’s next generation Event Technology cloud software iVvy Pty Ltd, was selected from 150 women to join the 544 female entrepreneurs who form the highly successful global expert network, Springboard Enterprises, a leading business accelerator for high-growth, women-led businesses.
Springboard Enterprises is a global not-for-profit organisation where entrepreneurs, investors and industry experts meet to build great women-led businesses.
“I was very determined to join this program given the rate of successful business outcomes,” said Mrs Hall, “It is an important vote of confidence on our achievements to date and can only help accelerate our growth into international markets. Having an additional mentoring team from the USA will really assist us in achieving our global strategy.”
“We were more than impressed with Lauren and what she has already achieved with iVvy”, said Wendy Simpson OAM, chairman of Springboard Enterprises Australia. “Lauren’s grasp of the power of building a strong global personal Advisory Board shows she really understands that getting the human capital leads to you getting the right financial capital. We look forward to working with Lauren and supporting her in the future development of iVvy.”
Since it’s launch in 2010, iVvy has achieved 200% growth year on year and services clients worldwide. iVvy has developed a broad range of integrated Event Management applications, using cloud and mobile technology, as well as a Venue Management System, currently in beta mode.
“Our plans for future development will disrupt existing industry structures through our innovative technology, the power of cloud and our highly skilled engineers, bringing huge cost savings and efficiencies to a fragmented and disparate Industry,” claims Hall. “They will include efficiencies that will bring real time global connections into play”.
The 545 women-led companies that have participated in a Springboard Accelerator globally over the past 14 years have raised more than $6 billion in financing, including 10 initial public offerings (IPOs) and legions of high value mergers and acquisitions, creating tens of thousands of jobs.
“Building on our success, we want to ensure that we can develop to meet the growing business demand for the efficiencies possible through events technology,” said Lauren. Creating business tools that are better, less expensive, more impactful, scalable and of course useful, continues to be iVvy’s goal.
