Like you, we are passionate about our profession. We work hard and it’s easy to become immersed in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of business. So we want to take a moment to recognize the vital importance of giving back to the community and caring about something bigger than yourself.
Arden Coaching is proud of its philanthropic partnership with Astia, a remarkable nonprofit organization dedicated to identifying, assisting, and developing women leaders and entrepreneurs around the world. We are very pleased to be an active, affiliate corporate sponsor.
Here’s a quick shoutout for Astia and a brief snapshot of their important work!
Astia was founded in Silicon Valley in 1999 as a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying and advancing women with leadership and high-growth entrepreneurial potential. Their model changes the way our entrepreneurial ecosystem views and evaluates organizations, working to increase the recognition of, and investment in, women entrepreneurs and their teams.
Astia identifies high-potential women-led companies through a personalized referral system, moves them through a multi-step “Expert Sift” towards possible investor presentation, links them to advisors and resources as needed, and shares them with its venture angels network.
Importantly, Astia is transforming the way businesses are funded, providing capital, connections, and guidance that fuel the growth of innovative, women-led ventures around the globe. They have a remarkable record of success. Please explore and learn more at Astia.org.
In addition to our financial support, Maren Perry, Arden Caching’s President, will be sharing her expertise and presenting a special Astia Webinar, ”Leading Yourself and Others: The Evolution of a Founder.” The webinar is Tuesday, February 27, at noon (EST).

Maren will be discussing the phases of leadership that founders and entrepreneurs go through, understanding the life cycle of leadership, and helping attendees understand how to plan for, and approach, these challenges given their own circumstances.
It is gratifying for us to contribute, in our own way, to Astia’s important work. How do you give back to your community? What’s your passion? Whether it be the arts, social justice, economic development, or the environment, get engaged and make a difference!
