Molly Lindquist, a mom and breast cancer survivor, founded Consano, a 501(c)(3) crowdfunding platform for medical research, after her cancer diagnosis in 2011 at the age of 32. Molly graduated from Stanford University with a degree in economics and went on to work as an investment banking analyst in the consumer group at Robertson Stephens. After her stint in banking, Molly transitioned into the corporate world, traveling the globe sourcing products for World Market and then doing company planning for the Banana Republic brand of Gap Inc. Molly blogs about her cancer experience for the Huffington Post and was named a 2014 Knowledge Networks Rising Star by Portland Monthly magazine, a 2014 Orchid Award Winner and a 2015 “40 Under 40” award recipient by the Portland Business Journal and a 2015 Honoree of the one hundred. She is also the proud recipient of a “Best Mom in the World” mug.
“My pre-Consano work experience focused on corporate finance and strategy so I am happy to chat about financial modeling and strategic planning. Given Consano is a crowdfunding platform, I am happy to also chat about alternative funding opportunities and strategies (including crowdfunding).”
