Girls Just Want to Have Funds with Olivia Owens of iFundWomen
Women are starting businesses 4.8 times faster than the national average, yet there is a complete lack of funding options to get our businesses off the ground, and growing, without putting us into debt.
While 72% of female founders will cite lack of access to capital as the #1 barrier to starting a business, almost 50% of women cite lack of access to coaches and mentors, who have “been there, done that” as a major barrier. 30% of women also cite lack of access to a support system, community, and connections to help them level up as another huge barrier to launching a business.
Six Degrees Society wants to support our community wherever you’re at. Whether you've already launched a business (or two! Or three…) or you’ve got a side hustle, a passion project, or a non-profit. We’re joining forces with iFundWomen to host a highly interactive workshop led by iFundWomen’s Partnerships Manager, Olivia Owens, where attendees will learn to:
– How to articulate the problem you’re solving
– Hone your pitch
– Map your network
– Create a winning rewards strategy
– Market your product or service through your crowdfunding campaign
– How to make a persuasive ask for people to invest in your business
Crowdfunding is changing the business of how businesses launch and grow, and iFundWomen is closing the funding gap for female entrepreneurs. Named by NASDAQ as one of the top places for female entrepreneurs to raise capital, iFundWomen is widely recognized as the crowdfunding industry leader for female founders and creators. The reason why iFundWomen is fundamentally different from other platforms is because of its proprietary coaching program, The iFundWomen Method, which, when utilized, drives a 22x higher raise than the crowdfunding industry average.
Before we sit down for our programming, each guest will engage in two curated 15 minute connections, handpicked just for them, based on bios submitted pre-event via this form: https://goo.gl/forms/D8Tvyr3ygwPSwaGF2 .
