The irony is that the fundraising process demands and too often breaks down founders’ confidence and clarity.
Reboot yourself before your next pitch. Be the authentic powerhouse YOU ARE for YOUR company.
“Yes, especially when you’re deep in the trenches of fundraising and your getting ignored or completely doubted by investors” says CEO of SheTransacts.
There’s no one right path through life as a startup founder — just yours.
When was the last time you really looked at how far you’ve come — the obstacles you’ve overcome, the twists and turns that you navigated, and the milestones that really made…
As a former Olympic-level ice dancer, French/Econ major, NCAA hockey player (for scholarship), fashion CEO, and ed-tech CEO were all one of my “multiple lives” that led me to this honored role as CEO of WeTransact. As I mapped out my life trail, I saw something in myself that I hadn’t truly ever seen before. There was a common truth that tied all my previous “lives” together from all my experiences. Seeking a level playing field where I could challenge myself and reach my ultimate potential as a human to help others.
I am committed to paying it forward for…
The current founder fundraising playbook (pre-COVID) according to the All Raise Seed Boot Camp was for female founders to conduct 200 meeting in 2 months and close your round in under 4 months or you will be dead in the water living off zombie money. This means 100% of a founders time must be spend on networking and fundraising. For an early stage company when the founders are the drivers of traction this drastically impacts their traction and growth. This is a huge opportunity cost for an early stage company without a 6 month to 1 year runway to raise…

The key to entrepreneurial success is learning from mistakes — if you can learn from the mistakes others make — even better! So don’t grow to have the same regrets other founders have: learn to adopt a paradoxical mindset, define your personal vision of success, and cultivate a culture that fuels performance, engagement, and business results.

Time is at a premium in any workplace. We are always looking for ways to get more bang for our buck, including employee training.
It needs to happen, your employees need further training and upgrading along the way, but where to find the time? And if time is not the problem, the efficacy of the training might be. Enter — microlearning.
Delivered in small but power-packed bursts, micro-learning makes a significant difference in the way people are learning and doing their jobs. The learnings are offered in various forms, making them accessible and useful for all kinds of learners.
While we emphasize education and learning for our youth, the truth is that learning in life never stops. There are new things that we learn, new facts, new truths. Rather than fight against this, we need to embrace it. Only by embracing learning can we grow as people and help others with the knowledge that we gain. And there is a better way to learn as an adult that makes a difference in what we know and how we can use the new information that we are presented with.
For example, Transformative Learning Theory tells us that adults learn best…
