Posted by | October 9, 2015

We’re thrilled to announce that Safeguard has signed on as a Founding Contributor to AWE Ventures, a joint program between Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/SEP) and the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) that is working to expand the potential of women in the entrepreneurial and investing communities.

Last night, I attended AWE Ventures’ Founders Celebration, hosted by Benjamin’s Desk, where Safeguard was honored alongside fellow founding sponsors and contributors Penn Mutual, PACT, Benjamin’s Desk and Charisse Lille.

“Safeguard is aligned with Ben Franklin’s mission of diversifying the growth of technology and investment activity in our region and beyond. This partnership with the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs is a great initiative both to educate potential new investors of the possibilities within early stage investments, and help women founders’ access new capital. We’re excited to help our region lead the progress that our world needs,” said Safeguard’s President and CEO, Steve Zarrilli, in a blog post published by Ben Franklin.

AWE was founded in 1996 and is the mid-Atlantic region’s largest organization devoted to supporting high-growth businesses that are founded or lead by women. AWE hosts a variety of educational and networking events to establish relationships within the entrepreneurial community in the Greater Philadelphia area to develop, identify and motivate women entrepreneurs.
