Description

Seven years ago, I set out to write a book about my experience launching, growing, and eventually shutting down my first company, TrueBody. I thought it would help other women entrepreneurs to learn from my triumphs, my mistakes, and the hard lessons learned. As I worked on the book over the years, I also launched a couple more businesses and helped other women entrepreneurs raise capital for their start-ups. During this time, I discovered a pattern with how the money system works for womenor doesn't.I'm not the only who's seen this pattern either, and it extends beyond women to include people of color, the LGBTQ community, social entrepreneurs, and many others marginalized by the current capital system. Recent blogs and articles show how women-led businesses receive less than 3% of all the venture capital invested in the U.S., and less than 1% for people of color. This has spurred a small but growing movement to get more women and Black investors into the venture capital system. But I say the solution is not more investors in the VC system I believe we need a new system altogether.So, the subject matter of my book evolved into a bigger message for a broader audience. And this summer, I completed the manuscript that shares the stories of several women entrepreneurs and describes the new system of community capital that is already beginning to take shape. Now its time to get the message out into the world and keep momentum building.
