Former candidate for governor launches new business initiative


MADISON – Former gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke has launched a new technology-based business initiative, aimed at empowering women.

Wisconsin Gazette reports

The Building Brave mobile app is a social media platform that functions as the cornerstone of the identically named nonprofit that Mary Burke launched last fall, The Capital Times reported.

“Our message to women is to be bold, to be brave, but most important, to be you,” Burke told a small crowd of entrepreneurs, business professionals and community leaders at the Kauffman Foundation-sponsored 1 Million Cups event series.

The app contains an array of features meant to encourage women to be their most courageous selves. Users can share messages, chat with a “support squad” of other women, or engaged in conversation in sub-communities, such as “women in tech” or “moms.”
