Denise Brosseau

Denise Brosseau is the co-founder, president and executive director of the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs (FWE), a leading entrepreneurial organization for women building high-growth technology and life science companies. FWE offers innovative programs, access to top-tier funding sources and an active online community that accelerates women entrepreneurs' ability to launch and lead world-class companies.

Prior to joining FWE full time, Brosseau held a variety of positions in high-tech marketing and product management, including stints at Motorola, Kensington Microware and Broderbund Software. In the mid-1980s, she also founded her own computer training business, which she ran successfully for several years.

Brosseau has been bitten by the start-up bug on four other occasions, joining a travel business, a software development start-up, a voice mail company and a kiosk-based business as an early employee. Each of these experiences provided valuable lessons for her present position working with entrepreneurs.

Brosseau completed her MBA at Stanford University in 1993 and did her undergraduate work at Wellesley College. She serves on the advisory boards of the Women's Technology Cluster in San Francisco and several Bay Area start-ups.
