>  Stephanie Kaplan / Her Campus Media –  “set the bar extraordinarily high, and then set it higher”

>  Erica Zidel / Sitting Around– “take your idea and execute it, it does NOT have to be (a grueling) 90 hours a week (life)”

>  Dr. Sonia Divney / Zarzatech,- “opportunities arrive unexpectedly, you have to always be prepared”Mass Challenge,

>  Ashley Lucas / Diffuse 5 – “if you have the idea, just start it, no matter how small or the number of hours you put into it”

>  Ainsley Braun / Tinfoil Security – “follow your passion”

>  Erin Viestra / Zyrra – “be comfortable faking it ’til you make it … eventually you’re no long faking it and you know more than you thought”
