Women Entrepreneurs  

Learn How to Play the Funding Game 

Looking for Funding is like a game. Taking your first steps in funding can be intimidating. There is so much to learn, while you still need to manage and build your business at the same time.

Raising funding IS HARDER for women entrepreneurs, We only get 2.2% of VC Funding worldwide and nothing has changed much over the last 30 years!

"When I learned about the $1.7 Trillion Funding Gap for Women Entrepreneurs, I decided my mission would be to help female founders get investor-ready, get funded and back to building their business! I believe Women Entrepreneurs are the greatest untapped resource to re-ignite the global economy. Let's Give them Equal Access to Funding Now!"

Own The Moment - Pitch Course
