Elizabeth Lawler is an accomplished serial entrepreneur and C-level operator with more than two decades of success in designing, developing and leading startup organizations, with two notable exits in her rearview.
Today, as Co-Founder of xxAngels, Elizabeth and her emerging, Boston-based angel group are dedicated to bridging the funding gap for women entrepreneurs through early stage investments. In addition, Elizabeth serves as the Co-Founder & CEO of Appland, an emerging tech startup in the DevOps space that is operating in stealth mode until further notice.
As the former Co-Founder and CEO of Conjur, Elizabeth built the DevOps-focused security company from scratch, which was sold to market leader CyberArk for $42M in 2017. Prior to Conjur, Elizabeth was the Chief Data Officer at Generation Health, which later sold to CVS Caremark.
Before Elizabeth took the leap into entrepreneurship, she leveraged her P.h.D. in epidemiology and climbed the organizational ladder within MAVERIC to achieve the Deputy Director role, where she developed essential startup skills that have been instrumental in building her ventures.
Elizabeth prides herself on being an articulate communicator, experienced professor, and a published author of numerous recognized articles. As a firm believer that egos should be eliminated from company decisions, she strives to lead by example.
When Elizabeth is not buried in her work, fueled by an innate desire to constantly create and innovate, she competes in off-road races and enjoys spending time with her family.
