Kathryn Minshew is the founder and CEO of The Muse, a career platform and job discovery tool that's credited with helping over 50 million people find not just work — but inspiring careers — is a breakthrough of sorts. Her smart fashion sense, combined with her amazing ability to speak eloquently about entrepreneurship at schools like Harvard and on TV spots like The Today Show, make Kathryn a woman to pay close attention to.
These past few weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about the ways people help each other, both big and small. For example, I could have never grown The Muse
into the company it is today without help from others, and so I’ve worked hard to pay it forward in the last few years — helping other founders, opening doors and making connections, and giving time, advice, or intros wherever I can. In particular, I’ve focused on coaching up-and-coming female entrepreneurs who are pitching for seed and Series A stage funding.
Today, I wanted to celebrate incredible women who pay it forward by calling out eight great examples from industries like tech, media, and healthcare. Take a page from these powerful women and make a plan to pay it forward yourself.
