NASDAQ published an article about FORTE, the company featured in the second episode of our Unicorn Hunters show and FORTE’s founder, Lauren Foundos, see the excerpt below.
In this interview, NASDAQ dared Lauren to brag:
Q: We dare you to brag: What achievements are you most proud of?
A: I am proud to have built an incredible team and to have our previous funding round more than 200 percent oversubscribed. My most recent big win was being the only company on the reality show Unicorn Hunters, and getting all of the show’s judges to commit to investing in our latest funding round. These judges include Steve Wozniak, Rosie Rios, Lance Bass, Moe Vela, Silvina Moschini, and Alex Konanykhin. To be the only female entrepreneur on the show and the only company to get buy-in from all the judges was a surreal and very exciting experience.
We are very pleased that Lauren is "on NASDAQ’s radar” and delighted that she values our show so highly.
If you have not yet seen the episode featuring her, you can do it now at our UnicornHunters.com website. Lauren has impressed all the panelists and even Steve Wozniak, a co-founder of Apple, jumped on the opportunity to invest in her company, despite being known for his reluctance to invest in any venture.
