From war zones to boardrooms, New York-born and London-based Rupal Patel has often been the only woman in ultra-high-octane, Alpha-male environments. After a thrilling career at the CIA, she started her first six-figure business from scratch almost 10 years ago. Combining the business savvy gained along the way with her CIA training, she now helps startup founders and corporate leaders think bigger, lead better, and be bolder.
Leveraging her Ivy-League education, MBA degree, and CIA training, Rupal combines industry-leading theory with tactical experience to inspire everyone from boardroom executives to bootstrapping founders.
Her Entreprenora community is focused on helping women unleash their full potential while crystallizing their vision, finding and communicating their voice, amplifying their visibility and owning their value.
Rupal has been named one of 12 "wonder women who can wow us all" by YPN Magazine and a "power woman" by Harpers Bazaar. She's been appointed Entrepreneur in Residence at the London Business School, and is currently working on a book called From CIA to CEO: What Being a Woman in Espionage Taught Me about Thinking Bigger, Leading Better, and Being Bolder.
