Meet the TEAM
Founder & Chairman
Bernie most recently served as the Chairman and President of the Atlanta Technology Angels, consistently named as on of the top angel investment networks in the country. Her interest in increasing investment capital for women managed businesses and her passion for providing women CEOs of emerging businesses with the tools and connections to drive success in their companies led her to develop LaunchPad2X, one of the most innovative and successful business boot camps in the U.S. for women leaders.
In 2017 Kristi’s founded a functional fashion business called Clutch Creations. Clutch has been the recipient for 2 different grants in GA and owns 3 patents for the invention of “The Clutch Strap.” Clutch Creations is how Kristi found her way to Launchpad2X; participating in the 3Day Core Program further inspired her to continue focusing on developing and supporting female entrepreneurs. She carries an enthusiasm for startups and community building and is dedicated to making Atlanta thrive. Previously the social media volunteer, Kristi now focuses on increasing LP2X’s digital exposure and footprint online and in various entrepreneurship ecosystems nationwide.
