Women Making History – Part 3

Let me introduce Lizelle van Vuuren. If you haven’t heard about her, what she’s built, and what she’s currently launching in the startup community, today is your lucky day.

I started following Lizelle last year on Twitter while I was desperately looking for women entrepreneurs to follow and learn from. (Yes, this is a common trait that all of the featured women this month have.) She’s the CMO and Co-Founder of Undock, a company with a mission to “save the calendar” and make scheduling your meetings easier. If you follow along in her journey while she “builds in public”, you know that the team does such a successful job at building hype for their launch(es) and product features. (Link in Stagger below!)

Undock team aside, one of the many reasons I enjoy following Lizelle’s specific history-making journey is that she is completely open and transparent about her story and her life. She openly shares the highs and lows of what she experiences in building a company, being an advocate for other females, and small doses of her relationship with her wife sprinkled in. She brings humility and play into everything she shares – and it’s a breath of fresh air for women who are building just like her.

Her startup experience started long before Undock. She’s the founder behind Women Who Startup, a community of women who share a common passion for entrepreneurship and want to be surrounded by other likeminded individuals for encouragement and mentorship. It’s based in Denver but like most online communities, it has a global reach for women all over the world. The commitment she selfishly gives to the community in order to support and inspire is truly something magical to be a part of. Even if it is just sometimes reading a tweet that leaves you smiling.

Speaking of making history. Tomorrow is the second launch event of Undock. Do yourself a favor and follow along and see what they’re about to release. This will give you a sense of why I think Lizelle and her team at Undock are making history.

Save the calendar. Save the world.
