Building Brave, a nonprofit company headed by former gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, is creating an app-based online community that aims to connect women from a variety of industries while supporting other nonprofits and charities.

“My vision is that we become a grant-making organization for girls and women’s groups throughout the world, because we’ll be bringing in more money than we need to sustain and grow our platform,” Burke said at a Madison meeting of 1 Million Cups, a national entrepreneurial network.

Community members will interact through a “digital platform that supports and brings together other women’s organizations throughout the world for deeper and broader impact.”

According to a promotional video for Building Brave, it will be “a place where women can be their most real, badass, non-perfect, brave selves, and cheer on other women to do the same.” Read the full story here.
