BRINGING FEMALE FOUNDERS & SAVVY INVESTORS TOGETHER

I've supported and mentored female founders for many years and, more often than not, the missing link to their success is funding. That's why I started Next Chapter Raise to inspire, educate and connect female founders with savvy investors and to do so in a safe and supportive space. So, what is funding and why consider it? Funding is any outside capital injected into your business. Hands down, it's the most effective way to grow your company, hire more staff and reach more markets. But where do you begin? And what funding option is right for you and your business? We're here to answer all these questions and plenty more. So, let’s get started!

There are many funding sources available but when it comes to venture capital, the numbers have always been challenging. These figures haven’t moved substantially over the past decade. Next Chapter Raise is here to change all that and help women get funded faster. We are here to help you plan and execute your funding journey.

2%

Of VC capital went to all female founding teams

7%

Of VC partners are women

50%

Women start with 50% less capital than men

“Our studies show that emerging companies that start with a strong foundation of capital are far more likely to be successful than those who are poorly capitalized.”

CARLA HARRIS National Women's Business Council

FUNDING MADE EASIER

While there are numerous funding sources out there, it takes a lot of research to know how and where to find them.

At the same time, you’ve got to become investor ready, get your financials & documentation prepared, attend networking and pitch events and onboard strategic advisors such as a lawyer. At Next Chapter Raise, we’ve done all that research and built connections to make the whole process faster and more effective, saving you hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. And that means, you can get on with doing what you do best - running a great business.
