Anne M. Mahlum is a female entrepreneur who knows how to create and build with purpose… and how to do it quickly.

Owner and CEO of [solidcore], Anne founded the fast-growing boutique fitness company in Washington, D.C. in 2013. In just a few years, Anne has grown her company to more than 50 locations around the country (entirely corporately owned) with more than 100,000 clients, including Michelle Obama. In late 2017, Anne brought on Peterson Partners as a minority investor to help grow the company to close to 100 locations by the end of 2020. She has received notable media attention for her business acumen and success as a woman entrepreneur, including features in The Washington Post, The Washington Business Journal, and Runner's World.

In speeches, Anne draws on her entrepreneurial experience and regularly speaks at corporate events, academic institutions, and conferences on motivational topics including leadership, being bold, finding your happiness, the business behind starting a nonprofit, and social change.

Prior to [solidcore], Anne was the CEO of Back on My Feet (BoMF), a non-profit organization she founded in Philadelphia in 2007 that uses the power of running to change the way those experiencing homelessness see themselves, so they can make real changes in their lives. Anne's vision for Back on My Feet is simple, yet bold - to help as many people as possible, in the most efficient way as possible, redefine themselves so they can redefine their life, and to change the perception of homelessness on a global scale. In addition to Philadelphia, the organization now has chapters in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Indianapolis, Atlanta, New York City, Austin, and Los Angeles. Anne led BoMF to become a $6.5M privately-funded organization with staff of 48, thousands of volunteers, and hundreds of members.

Anne’s work with Back on My Feet has been featured in both local and national media. She has been named ABC World News Person of the Week, a CNN Hero, New Yorker of the Week, and a Top 40 Under 40 individual by both Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.’s Business Journal. Anne was featured in the book, 50 Everyday Heroes, and hosted a documentary on youth homelessness for MTV called The Break.

Originally from Bismarck, North Dakota, Anne currently lives in Washington, D.C. She has completed 12 marathons, one on every continent – the most recent one in Antarctica.
