Stacy Taubman is driven by one thing: helping people achieve. She is especially passionate about empowering teen girls, women and minorities. For more than a decade, she worked in secondary education as a math teacher, but a tragedy involving a student became a tipping point for Stacy to take her natural aptitude for leadership in a drastically different direction. In 2017, she founded RISE Collaborative - a community and workspace for all women to grow and achieve. RISE isn't just for start-ups or entrepreneurs, but also for women who work in corporate environments, small businesses, and nonprofits. Additionally, it's a place where teen girls can do homework, receive mentoring and surround themselves with inspiring female role models. With weekly events designed for members to learn and inspire professional development, RISE Collaborative has quickly grown in both Denver and St. Louis. In this interview, find out more about Stacy’s journey and the enterprise she has built.
Imagine a place where people and companies can gather to transform the HEALTH in our nation and even the world. That is the vision behind Mike Biselli’s Catalyst. It’s not just a coworking facility for healthcare companies to set up shop. Yes, it houses healthcare startups, large companies, tech companies, and even a clinic all under one roof, but it also offers so much more to support the people within the industry. There are networking events, lectures, mentoring opportunities, amenities, and common areas that facilitate interaction with others who are all working towards the common goal of advancing the healthcare industry. In this episode, Mike tells us what his driving forces were for creating Catalyst.
