Founder, Ellevest

Sallie Krawcheck ended her tenure as one of the most powerful people on Wall Street when she stepped down as the president of the Global Wealth & Investment Management division of Bank of America in 2011. After a year and a half sabbatical, she announced her next step: Using her network and influence to help women succeed in business. In 2013, she bought 85 Broads, a 30,000-strong global professional woman's network that represents 130 countries with more than 40 regional chapters and campus clubs. In 2014, 85 Broads was rebranded as Ellevate.
