UCF Blackstone Launchpad exec: We have an ‘an unusually engaged female entrepreneur community’


When it came to selecting a new director for University of Central Florida’s student business incubator, Shea Glenny was the top choice, thanks to her experience in mobilizing Central Florida’s entrepreneurs.

Not only was Glenny director of the women’s entreprenuer center WeVenture in Orlando, which now is closed, but she also worked with key collaborators to bring important entrepreneurial programs to the Orlando area. Examples of programs she has co-launched in Orlando are 1 Million Cups, Global Entrepreneurship Week, BIG Exchange and Women’s Entrepreneurship Day.
