What Other Women Entrepreneurs Say ...

Own The Moment - Pitch Course

Sarah McBride, Partner - Shrug Capital, UK

"I learned there are physiological differences between the genders that cannot simply be 'wished away'. As women, it serves us to best accept these differences, and do something about them to ensure they are not the reason we fail to get sufficient funding."

Crowdfunding 101 Course

Angela Leany, CEO Hogan Security Group, USA

"The tips were practical, pitched at the right level, interesting."

Nicole Glaros - Techstars- Investor Masterclass

Lucilla Costa, Edulai Edtech instructor, Italy

"Almost all of my questions were answered. I felt as if I was having a direct conversation with Nicole. It was almost personal."

Own The Moment - Pitch Course

Joanna Phiel, Program Manager, Lighthouse Labs Accelerator, USA

"One of the two female founders we have in our fall batch attended the program. She thought the content was of worth for female founders! She especially thought it was well packaged, in one place, and would help reduce frustration and self doubt on their part, which would be highly valuable. "

Nicole Glaros - Techstars - Investor Masterclass

Claire Chang, Fashtech Hub Founder, Taiwan

"I think many female founders here need to have more encouragement & help. It is good to have this Masterclass series to talk about different angles from investors' insights."

Own the Moment - Pitch Course

Victoria Simon, Founder of Aquilando, Argentina

“I found every explanation about the biological differences between men's and women's brains very useful and I think the clue to succeeding in business is to dominate and internalize that and act consequently. It's SO important for women in business to understand this in order to succeed.”
