The summit 2018
FinFoundHer is the ultimate business adventure and path to funding workshop for women FinTech founders.
Over 100 females founders and industry experts converged at EvolveHer, the chic new women’s co-working space in Chicago’s River North, May 19-20, 2018 for 2 days of jam-packed content.
Adventure-themed immersive workshops brought founders (pre-start-ups, start-ups and growth-focused business owners), investors and industry experts together to learn how to scale the toughest peaks and summit your dream business mountain successfully.
The entrepreneurs trekked through ideation, from concept to construct; designed a path to profitability; and learned to successfully navigate the tough fundraising trails. With a focus on growth strategies, including buy, build or partner; acquiring the competition; and evaluating capital-raising needs, options and planning.
Together we explored the many facets of capital-raising, from angels to venture debt and crowdfunding to SBA loans. Workshops taught attendees how to build the proper business ecosystem to avoid working without a net; finding your perfect pitch and valuation; and the time-honored arts of selling and negotiating.
