About Event

If you've been building your venture for a little while, chances are, you are feeling tired, under-resourced, and pretty lonely.

As a feminine founder, things get more complicated - you may be creating your venture from a deeper sense of purpose - and not everyone is going to "get it."

The good news is that there are values-aligned investors out there for you - you just have to learn to "pitch like a goddess" - to anchor deeply into your highest vision for humanity, and then communicate it with authority and clarity to invite others to join you. 

The key is to understand the difference between your feminine leadership energy (which is magnetic and visionary), and your masculine leadership energy (which holds a strong container, including deciding your fundraising amount and timeline.)

In this workshop, you’ll experience a shift in:

- how to re-frame your pitch deck to become compelling to any outsider who doesn't understand your business

- how to re-frame your strategy so you can magnetize values-aligned supporters - and keep out the rest

- how to stay grounded, anchored, and powerfully connected to your own vision as you shift, grow, and transform yourself and your venture.

This framework is based on Nilima’s personal experience scaling her paradigm-shifting sex education program to half a million youth, in a foreign country, with a team of only 3 people and a handful of cash. It has also helped other founders raise millions.

About The Female Founders Lab by Nilima Achwal:

With over 15 years of experience in the impact venture space, Nilima believes that our industries are currently experiencing a radical systemic shift towards transparency, decentralization, and regenerative and holistic values, led by women, particularly in large industries like healthcare, education, food systems, media, circular economy, and the future of work/communities.

Through her brand, The Female Founders Lab, she has helped pre-seed founders with a vision for humanity to raise millions in the past few years. Previously, she has been an ed-tech founder herself, and created and run accelerators for social entrepreneurs, one of which was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. She has been published and featured in 100+ publications/talks worldwide, including CNBC, VICE, and TEDx.
