In an interview with the Austin Business Journal, Leigh Christie, the senior vice president for global technology and innovation at the Chamber says:

“We are proud to support the launch of Women@Austin’s Beam Angel Network. There are more women turning to entrepreneurship than ever before, and 21% of Austin businesses are woman-owned. Beam has the opportunity to provide the needed connections and opportunities for these entrepreneurs and our investors.”
