 How It Started 
 How It Started 

"I grew up thinking that I was either going to be rich or happy, that the only way to succeed was to compete and extract value from others, that something had to give for me to have the life I wanted. And there was nothing to show me a different way forward...
So I created it."

Testimonials
"You bring a sense of the achievable to the world of entrepreneurship. Anyone interested in starting and developing a global business should seek you out."
-Tracey Hodgkins. CEO. Australian Experiential Learning Centre.

“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."
-Enio Pinto. Program Manager. Inst. Latin American Business. Babson College. USA.

About the Women Get Funded Program, “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 this program to anyone.”
-Angela Han, Marketing Titans, Australia 

"Your training was fantastic. You can explain Venture Capital and Angel Investing like no other. We received many compliments about the structure, the format, the delivery and most importantly, your connection with the audience."
-Marcelo Rabba. El Círculo (Venture Capital Fund), Chile

 "We received a fantastic feedback from our students regarding your training.
It is time we can create wealth with our research."
-Dr. Paula Sanders. Dean Postdoctoral Studies. Rice University. USA.

About the Women Get Funded Program, “Great course to learn about the different level of financing a business.”
