Lucy was quoted in this article in Forbes on the rise of a the new French entrepreneur: the female millenial:
â€œIt takes a village to build a company,â€ says Lucy P. Marcus, CEO, Marcus Venture Consulting. â€œWomen are often good at collaboration and good at asking for help. When we hit a rough patch rather than feeling as if we have to tough it out ourselves, we are good at creating an eco-system â€“ a network if you will â€“ to help: advisors, partners, mentors, staff; a team of people who can help bring the project to fruition.â€
Marcus says that can make a real difference in nurturing a company at its early and most vulnerable stages.
There are some great networks of women who are very generous with their time, expertise, and help. Getting involved with those networks, both country specific and global, can make a real difference in moving an early stage venture towards success â€“ Lucy P. Marcus, CEO, Marcus Venture Consulting.
â€œAlthough it is a bit of a clichÃ©, most of the women I know really are good multi-taskers, and that is invaluable at the early stages of a company when there is a multitude of things that need to be done, often all at once,â€ adds Marcus.
