This is the missing piece of the entrepreneurial puzzle, the perfect complement to Steve Blank and Eric Ries’ Startup books. It’s quite refreshing because quite often you read all about how someone was awesome and their ‘glory days’ type stories rather than ‘I made a mistake once, here’s what you can do to avoid it in case you’re making that same mistake too’.
Listening to Alicia Castillo Holley from Women Get Funded, is a transformational experience. This extraordinary woman motivates and trains women entrepreneurs around the globe on how to gain access to capital, and in all aspects of finance and funding. One of the best piece of advice she gave me was this: “We tend to think that having a larger firm means working more. It doesn’t. It means working smarter and less." Pino Kyri, Asociación HEROIKKA. Spain.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful analysis of the last video. I keep working on my pitch videos, increasing trust in my brand and wining prices so I am much better prepared to raise capital. Prerna Pasad, Ecoplore. India.
Alicia asked me questions and mentored me along the way to help me understand where my story was strong and where it needed improvements so I could adjust my application and pitch accordingly. Marwa Nur Muhammad, Trance. California.
Great course to learn about the different level of financing a business. Brenda Sullivan, Thompson Street Farm LLC. Colorado.
I got my first wow at the start of the program: “How to think” have given me the most awesome self-reflection points to implement not only in my business, but in my life.
Monika Siriah, Vedglobals. India.
I can’t thank you enough. For the first time, I can have a proper conversation with an investor, and talk about my valuation and deal terms clearly. I have never been able to do so before, no wonder I haven’t been able to close a deal in over a year. Cristina Suarez, Mi Plaza. Spain
Alicia brings a sense of the achievable to the world of entrepreneurship. Anyone interested in starting and developing a global business should seek her out.” Tracey Hodgkins, CEO, Australian Experiential Learning Centre, Australia
The attention accorded to each individual application is special. Margaret Reuben. Nairobi, Kenya
Alicia's commitment to getting other women funded for their startups and projects is unlike anything else you'll find in the startup sisterhood. She's passionate, committed, focused. She also is deeply supportive and encouraging. Her program looks to be a wonderful way to engage with her personally in a way that picks up where her books leave off. Stop wasting time and get going. She'll take you by the hand and show you how. Bravo! Barbara Tien, Ponga. California.
