The Beginning of Brave
Brave was founded in April of 2015 by it’s three cofounders, Emily Harburg, Jen Kamins and Anna Bethune. Both Emily and Anna were in a lab together in grad school at Northwestern and both Jen and Emily attended the same church in Chicago. Emily brought the three together to eventually start Brave! As a team, these women were very passionate about closing the gender gap in tech, empowering girls to be the best versions of themselves and creating a space where girls felt free and comfortable to learn about themselves and others.
