Ambassadors Intersection 2013


Leslie Errington

Co-Founder at Forward Innovations

I love what I do! I’m a Co-Founder at Forward Innovations, a Startup Accelerator for tech companies working closely with some of the best and brightest Founders and companies in tech. I specifically focus on working with Founders and Investors on building their thought-leader image using social media. Every Founder should be an expert and a leader in their industry! Our branding world has changed dramatically in our favor!
My experience includes over 14 years in media & publishing – working for the world’s top publisher, 3 years working in the VC world in corporate development – finding investors for the funds, creating strategic partnerships for the Media Group and opportunities for the M&A Group. Additionally, I started my career as a Graphic Designer.
Forward Innovations, lead by 8-time CEO and Co-Founder Jack Porter and myself, is a startup accelerator with a fund and is focused on providing real, practical information to get companies funded and on their way to success.
It’s simple, Forward Innovations does 3 things for Startups: we have a Startup Fund used to lead rounds with 30 – $100k investments and 10 – $250k follow-on investments, introductions to high-end super Angels and help make startups fundable.
I have a deep passion for what I do and have been called tenacious and creative. I take great pride in my projects and goals and get tremendous fulfillment out of helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams to change the world!

I enjoy bringing together partnerships that create amazing results!
