Jill Salzman, Oak Park
Jill launched The Founding Moms with events in Oak Park, Geneva, Evanston, Highland Park, and Chicago to bring together like-minded women who wanted to skip the networking luncheons and boring business card swaps for educational and supportive roundtables while growing their businesses and navigating work and family life.
Jill’s successes include an internationally acclaimed TEDx talk, authoring two books, and co-hosting the Breaking Down Your Business podcast. She was named “the mommy mogul” by CNN Money, listed as one of Forbes’ Top 50 Women To Watch in Tech, and she’s shared the speaker stage with Richard Branson, Sheryl Sandberg, Daymond John, Marilu Henner, and Desmond Tutu.
She has two daughters and is a wedding singer in her spare time. Jill breaks all traditional rules, defies expectations, and always finds success on the other side! -Kristen Kucharski
