An Introduction to Raising Capital

Our Prepare to RAISE program is designed to provide women-led ventures with:

A robust and deep foundation on how to navigate the capital raising process
A comprehensive understanding of all capital options (debt and equity)
Development of an understanding for how it all fits together

Prepare to RAISE addresses the need for female founders to empower themselves with the fundamental tools and knowledge for capital raising, while also reflecting the nuances of how women think as leaders, how they create financial plans, build out growth strategies and mitigate risks.

We work with businesses from technology startups to bricks-and-mortar.  Our program provides female founders with a safe, collaborative, and inspired environment in which to understand and plan their capital goals and strategies.
