Funds to accelerate growth plans in the quest to retain working mothers
Together with Naples Technology Ventures, we are wholly committed to creating more opportunities for working mothers.”
— Delphine Carter
BIRMINGHAM, AL, USA, June 6, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Boulo Solutions (Boulo) has successfully placed hundreds of working mothers with forward-thinking companies for mutual benefit. This latest round of $1.5 million in funding, led by Naples Technology Ventures, will accelerate Boulo’s product evolution to better serve both employers and working mothers. This includes two new affordable self-serve subscription-based offerings for employers hiring full-time, part-time and contract roles. For members, new upskilling resources will facilitate easy access for professional development allowing them to hit the ground running.
With an ambitious goal to have 1% more women in the workforce by 2030, Boulo addresses hiring pain points for employers including limited access to quality talent, leveling the playing field on employer brand visibility, time to fill, and/or consideration of non-linear work histories. All employers using Boulo embrace modern-day workforce practices including flexibility of location, hours or culture. Boulo’s platform members benefit from the unique way Boulo positions their experience through the proprietary 360° profile, community programming and upskilling opportunities.
Delphine Carter, Boulo Founder and CEO, is a seasoned product manager who brings a breadth of technical, project management and leadership experience from top tier SaaS companies to drive the success of Boulo. Her vision for Boulo was based on her own pain points as a manager, leader and working mother and of those with whom she worked. Working mothers comprise a third of the female workforce. McKinsey’s 2020 Women in the Workplace report, revealed that one in three working mothers was considering downshifting or leaving their careers. Studies show that companies with more women executives are more likely to outperform those with fewer senior women.
“Boulo’s platform is changing the way employers are hiring and providing working mothers the opportunity to have flexible working hours, accommodations needed for their busy schedules, and a positive culture within the workforce. We’re excited to be supporting such a strong mission that provides sizable opportunities for working mothers. Making an investment in Boulo was the perfect fit for our NTV Prosperity Fund, which invests solely in female and minority owned companies.”
Mike Abbaei, Managing Partner at NTV
“We are excited about NTV’s investment in Boulo. Not just because of the opportunities we will create with the additional funds but also because of the introductions, thought leadership and experience they offer. Together we are wholly committed to creating more opportunities for working mothers.”
