More women are willing to take the risk to start companies today, but the challenge is finding the right investors to back those entrepreneurial ventures, said Kay Koplovitz, editor of 'Been There, Run That.' Koplovitz added that her firm Springboard Enterprises has become the premier platform to match innovators and investors with women-led businesses.
