Lizelle van Vuuren

Founder, Women Who Startup

Denver

Innovation, invention, startups, growth, marketing and entrepreneurship are a few of my favorite things. I enjoy coming up with new ideas and strategies to solve problems. I like to take ideas and grow them into businesses by way of human connection. User experience and human experience are two dynamics that I'm deeply exploring as a person, an entrepreneur and as a growth strategist.

I've been taking technology ideas from napkin scribbles to product/ market fit for over 10 years professionally.

I've been head of marketing, head of product, CEO, CMO, COO and everything else as an entrepreneur. I've raised money, launched a successful Kickstarter Crowdfunding campaign and I know how to bootstrap even when there's cash.

I have an eclectic background in education and experience ranging from performance arts, art, psychology, web design and development, an MBA specializing in Marketing, and good old classic training of trying new things and failing fast so I can get to the successes faster.

I love the intersection of purpose, innovation, profit and passion. I believe that those are a few key pillars to creating impact in this world, however big or small.

I'm the Founder of Women Who Startup and I'm building a platform to bring people together and foster and invest in female entrepreneurs and leaders. (Looking for partners and investors.)

Most recently I participated in 10.10.10 Health, a unique platform where innovators get introduced to wicked health problems and I've been intrigued by Health Tech and the "human element"​ that is missing from healthcare since.

I'm an advocate for diversity and equality, in tech and in every facet of life.
