 About This Event


This event is NOT about how to raise money in the Silicon Valley style where your investors will expect you to grow as fast as possible at any cost so that the company can be acquired in 5-7 years and the investors make a killing. We will not waste your time teaching you how to make yourself more appealing to this kind of investor! Why? Because in our opinion, that model is wrong for 99.9% of businesses – especially woman-owned mission-driven businesses.  

This event IS about designing a capital raising strategy customized to your unique situation, values, structure, and goals. Our approach works for companies at any stage and in any industry.  

Fund and Fuel Your Dreams is a 3-day event where you will get hands-on, expert training on how to raise money for your business. You will leave with a step-by-step plan and resources to take the plan forward.  At the event there will be opportunities for support from experts on messaging, your financials, and more.  It is also a place to connect with like-minded mission-driven, heart centered women entrepreneurs in a supportive fun environment!  You'll even have an opportunity to meet socially conscious investors that are especially interested in women-led businesses!
