Being a Wealthing VC club member has opened my eyes and mind to the startup investment world. They say you learn by doing, and that is precisely what Wealthing VC Club does for its members. The ultra-quality deals presented, the customized training, our collegial and thoughtful discussions when evaluating a deal—all of those things have an empowering effect for those hungry to own their finances and to invest in world-changing innovations. Our club creates a perfect balance of a safe entry into the startup investment world, while immediately exposing you to the thought process and “lingo” of knowledgeable and well-respected luminaries. I now understand how to effectively evaluate a startup, from assessing an entrepreneur presentation to asking hard questions to help us arrive at sound decisions. In my dual path as an investor and entrepreneur, I am now comfortable sitting on both sides of the venture table.

I have known Dr. Castillo now for over 10 years now and was an early investor in the company. She has pushed me to follow my dreams, do the work necessary to achieve, and strategize my business during the numerous challenges that pop up while starting an organization. She has been an amazing mentor that has coached me with tough love and compassion as well as being an amazing advisor to my team and company in general. Having Alicia on my side during the process of life as an entrepreneur has helped me to evolve into the man that I am today. Highly recommended!

“I can’t thank you enough. For the first time, I can have a proper conversation with an investor, and talk about my valuation and deal terms clearly. I have never been able to do so before, no wonder I haven’t been able to close a deal in over a year.”
-Cristina Suarez, My Plaza, Spain.
"Alicia delighted Babson College with her speech on “Funding amazing firms”. Not only her spirit and motivation, but her knowledge in entrepreneurship was valuable for me and for the students."

“This is the missing piece of the entrepreneurial puzzle, the perfect complement to Steve Blank and Eric Ries’ Startup books. It’s quite refreshing because quite often you read all about how someone was awesome and their ‘glory days’ type stories rather than ‘I made a mistake once, here’s what you can do to avoid it in case you’re making that same mistake too’. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
