Lila Igram


Lila put together a bootstrapping, volunteer team that together donated over $50K of in-kind services to launch, a global communication and crowd-funding platform focused on elevating the status of women and girls globally. Connecther provides a diverse communication platform, including the Girls Impact the World (GITW) Film Festival, to spotlight critical issues facing women and girls throughout the world.

Prior to that, Lila worked for FLOW, a nonprofit which advocates Conscious Capitalism.

Growing up in an entrepreneurial family led to Lila co-found her first company in 2004, a t-shirt company which advocated for social justice.

Lila was born and grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and graduated from the University of Iowa. She has traveled extensively in the Middle East, South America, Africa and Europe -- living in Cairo, Egypt for one year. She currently lives in Austin, TX with her husband and three kids.
