Entrepreneur Leadership Series Speaker - March 4, 2015


Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, Nicole DeBoom was a standout swimmer, qualifying for the 1988 Olympic Trials and later graduating from Yale University. When she started participating in triathlons, a lucky seat assignment on a flight to the 1995 World Championships introduced her to her future husband (and future 2-time Ironman World Champion), Tim DeBoom.

Her professional triathlon career culminated in a win at the 2004 Ironman Wisconsin, while wearing a prototype of the first-ever running skirt – a product that would launch a revolution in women’s fitness clothing just a few months later. DeBoom founded Skirt Sports in September 2004. Today, Skirt Sports is a fast-growing women’s events and apparel brand. It offers a full line of products that fit real women’s bodies and support their busy running lives.
