Girls Get Funded wants female founders & womxn to take control of their financial futures

  • by training them to build their own startup companies and products via our Digital Incubator Bootcamp.
  • We help womxn (females, non-binary & transgender) founders get coaching on financial jargorn.
  • Linking womxn and female founders with a community of go-getters!

We get it…building a startup, and navigating financial jargon can sometimes be difficult, so we run engaging events, online workshops and courses with the best coaches and experts in the industry to breakdown and demystify financial topics  on a range of topics from forming a startup, to crowdfunding, investing, fundraising and much more.

There are a massive financial gap when it comes to womxn and female founders getting access to funding, understanding how startup tech ecosystem works, finding investors and angels and VCs who are willing to work with these founders.

Our Mission

Our mission is to change women’s relationship with the word “startup” and make them financially savvy. We want women to feel confident and fearless about talking their idea, their project, validating their financial models, ensuring their financial future with our fabulous coaching!

Our Values

Ok, yes, we value bags and shoes and jazz but much more. It’s bigger than that. Girls Get Funded values a sustainable and equal world where the larger vision is to become THE digital place for womxn founders when it comes to understanding anything related to startups & finance.

A Founder’s ‘Why’

Girls Get Funded was created when I realized that a lot of my female friends and female entrepreneurs often struggle to understand startup jargon and financial or investment concepts.

For female founders who have big ideas but may lack a sense of direction and outreach, I want to be on their speed dial!

Girls Get Funded has had over 250 people attend either a  bootcamp, a webinar or an online workshop. Throughout the year we will partner with Angels, VCs, funding providers, financial services institutions, personal finance gurus to learn where startups grow and how to invest their money. GirlsGetFunded have worked to run corporate workshops with coaches, law firms, angels  and technology startups.

It is my personal mission to empowering as many women as I can in my lifetime to take control of their own lives & starting their own business so they get ahead with dreams. So allow me to help you via Girls Get Funded!
