Washington Square News, "NYU Alumna Donates $5 Million Toward Advancing Women in Business"

A Stern alumna and entrepreneur donated $5 million to the school of business last Thursday, which will go toward fostering the success of women in business.

Elizabeth Elting’s gift –– the largest a self-made woman has ever donated to Stern –– will supply 20 female-led businesses with seed capital through the Elizabeth Elting Venture Fund in association with Stern’s Endless Frontier Labs, a mentorship program aiding early-stage tech start-up companies. The donation will also fund the “Elizabeth Elting Women’s Leadership Fellowship,” which is intended to aid 40 women selected for their leadership and merit throughout their MBA pursuits.
