REALLY?! who gets to have personal time with the advisor to our former president and CEOS of major corporations??! Having the former advisor to President Obama dive into our business and end with “your company is needed and worthwhile” gave us the courage to reach for the stars. By far the most diverse set of business leaders and supportive program out there. For anyone serious about moving their business forward, choosing the Billion Dollar Funder Circle is for you. Participating in the BDFC will help your new business get some serious TO DO’s done – business plan, 3 minute pitch, headshots, and so much more! They bring it all together (people, process, framework) and it is ridiculously AFFORDABLE!! There is really no way to explain what happens when you bring women business owners together in a collaborative environment combined with world-class business leaders, it’s pure MAGIC. Knowing we will better serve women world-wide by leveraging their guidance is the ultimate testament of its value.
I had the chance to meet with Anna McCoy and get feedback on my pitch, She had a great perspective on how to improve my pitch by telling my personal story and organizing the flow of the story of the business. This was incredibly helpful getting prepared for the pitch competition. Anna’s experience and passion for helping women entrepreneurs was inspirational in an of itself. The BDFC’s advisors were so generous with their time sharing their experiences with their businesses to help us all as we grow our companies. I found such value from the summit itself, the summit was unlike anything I have ever experienced with so many amazing women of various walks of life and careers that have broken boundaries and created incredible lives for themselves. It was inspiring to be around so many women and a culture of support and encouragement.
The BDFC gave us the resources to accelerate our growth exponentially. It provided us the tools we needed to refine our business plan and take our company to new heights. It would have taken us months or even years to reach this stage by ourselves. But with the help of the BDFC advisors and the EBW team, we were able to find new roads to keep moving forward and we are very excited to find out what the future holds for us.
As an emerging enterprise software company targeting Fortune 500 companies, BDFC was instrumental in helping us define our entry into a difficult market segment. Throughout the BDFC program, we worked hard with mentors, peers, and EBW leaders to help us stretch our knowledge and understanding of where we are in our current phase of business. Thanks to the collective knowledge, the tools and the intensive pace of the accelerator, we were able to efficiently develop the crucial steps needed to move our business onto the next level! We are stronger, wiser and much more prepared for scaling our business after completing the Accelerator Program!
