On March 5, 2020, Bold Legal sponsored the Women’s Prize Night of CU Boulder’s New Venture Challenge. The NVC Women’s Prize Night highlights top NVC teams with at least one female founder. The New Venture Challenge is CU Boulder’s entrepreneurial launchpad, giving aspiring entrepreneurs from across the CU ecosystem outstanding support and mentorship to transform ideas into startups.
Bold Legal sponsored the Women’s Prize in order to support and promote the growth of female entrepreneurs and business leaders. “We are proud to support female entrepreneurs through this fantastic event,” said Bold Legal Founder and CEO David Kendall. “It is well known that female management and leadership makes companies more successful, and this is where it starts. By recognizing and supporting these excellent women-led companies, we support our next generation of female business leaders,” said Kendall.
The winner of the Women’s Prize event, CathPort, took home the top prize and a $5,000 check funded by Bold Legal. CathPort has developed a novel bladder catheterization device that eliminates tubes, bags, and many of the complications of current catheterization methods. CathPort was founded by Sarah Hecht, a pediatric urology fellow at Children’s Hospital Colorado at CU Anschutz and a CU Boulder continuing education student. CathPort went on to win the Audience Prize at the NVC finals event.
Among the many notable companies participating in the Women’s Prize event were EdBoard, an ed-tech company aimed at changing the future of children’s circuitry education, which also went on to success at the NVC finals event; Elevated Eats, a sustainability conscious baked goods company focusing on hemp-infused cookies; and CarePenguin, a novel device to non-invasively and remotely monitor the well-being of elderly loved ones. Zayo Group also sponsored by hosting the event at its offices in Boulder.
