Nimsger started out as a product liability lawyer for the insurance industry in Minneapolis. It was after a random lunch 17 years ago that Nimsger took her $100,000 of student loans she had just accumulated to get a law degree and joined a software start-up that provided data recovery services. Nimsger ended up running Kroll Ontrack for a decade, growing it into a business with $250 million in revenues that was ultimately purchased by Providence Equity Partners for $1.1 billion.
