Launched in January 2005, FountainBlue’s rich history includes the creation and production of over 48 clean energy entrepreneur forums, 48 life science entrepreneur forums, 36 high tech forums, 36 executives-in-transition programs (in partnership with ExecuNet), 5 funding road trip workshops (which include 3 events each), and 6 CEO roundtables. Today, we run our monthly When She Speaks series in Silicon Valley, our quarterly When She Speaks event in San Francisco, and our invitation-only VIP roundtable for senior executives.

The overarching principle behind the events we run, and the coaching and consulting projects we conduct is a passion for innovation and leadership.

The ‘Fountain’ in our name represents the innovation edge which keeps companies relevant and the ‘Blue’ in our name represents the leadership needed to bring innovations to the market and to the customer. Bringing the two sides together becomes much more important as we move from an Age of Information to an Age of Personalization.


whenshespeaksSince  May 2006, we have partnered with tech companies across Silicon Valley every month to profile a panel of women senior executives in high tech companies, speaking on a range of leadership challenges and issues for Silicon Valley high tech women in particular. Our series celebrates women leaders, stimulates critical thinking and conversation around leadership challenges and issues, empowers and inspires all participants, including the next generation of leaders, and builds a proactive, collaborative and supportive leadership community overall.

This invitation-only event is designed for senior executives, to facilitate connections between peers and share best practices on today’s hottest opportunities and challenges.
