BANG member Anusia (ä-new-shä) Gillespie now brings her company banava to MassChallenge 2016, where she will compete to participate in its famed accelerator program, which provides high-impact start-ups with world-class mentorship, training, office space, funding, marketing, media, and other resources.
banava, which seeks to help attorneys to achieve career fulfillment through training, transitional assistance, and placement in non-traditional legal roles, has grown exponentially in both identity and impact since its inception. Says Anusia:
"I've been busy meeting with law and business professionals over the past couple of months to refine my business plan. I've now engaged a community of professionals, heavy-hitter advisors (including Liz Brown, former litigation partner at an international law firm and author of Life After Law), a Top 100 Law Firm sponsorship partner, Fragomen Worldwide (first event May 12th!), and solidified the plan. banava is now officially in the running for MassChallenge 2016, with a vision of 'bridging law and business for the greater good in a changing world.'"
BANG wishes Anusia and banava the best of luck in MassChallenge 2016!
