The Problem We’re Solving
Women are starting businesses 4.8 times faster than the national average, yet there is a complete lack of funding options to get our businesses off the ground, and growing, without putting us into debt. Only 1% of businesses, regardless of the gender of the founder, will ever raise venture capital. So, how do 99% of businesses get their startup funding? We max out our credit cards or try to take out a bank loan, and nobody should go into debt funding the early days of your business.
While 72% of female founders will cite lack of access to capital as the #1 barrier to starting a business, almost 50% of women cite lack of access to coaches and mentors, who have “been there, done that” as a major barrier. 30% of women cite lack of access to a support system, community, and connections to help them level up as another huge barrier to launching a business.
Our Holistic Solution
iFundWomen provides a platform for women-led businesses to access to capital through rewards-based crowdfunding, expert coaching, professional creative production, a collaborative entrepreneur community, and access to industry connections critical to launching and growing businesses.
Why We're Different
The reason why iFundWomen is fundamentally different than anything on the market today is because of our proprietary coaching program, The iFundwomen Method, which brings four core principles together:
A 45-day crowdfunding campaign is a low risk way to test the market for your product or service, giving you the opportunity to offer rewards, incentives, products and services to backers in exchange for cash contributions to support your goal.
We will coach you, one-on-one, on how to successfully launch your crowdfunding campaign, including pitch honing, network mapping, strategic planning, rewards budgeting, and pre-launch marketing.
Producing your crowdfunding video and a gorgeous project page can seem like a daunting task, but not at iFW! We make it easy for you to have a professional video, and a fabulous project page, with the help of our creative experts.
Entrepreneurs who invest in The iFundWomen Method coaching + video program raise on average $22k, compared to the $1k average of traditional crowdfunding.
