THE PROGRAM

THE BIG PUSH

The Big Push is a 4-6 month equity-for-service program that identifies the business challenges of your startup and puts together an in-depth project roadmap and scheduling of talent to help execute on your goals.

FOLLOW-ON SUPPORT

We provide follow-on support in the form of HR talent sourcing, fund-raising, health and wellness facilitation, legal, pitch refinement, advisor and board recommendations.

SERIES A

We get you Series A ready by working to ensure you achieve the metrics, progress and traction needed and help you leverage our network when the time is ripe.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

HANDS-ON SUPPORT

Unlike other accelerators, we don’t just mentor you, we work side-by-side to help you get the job done and achieve your goals.

SHIFT IN FOCUS

We let you focus on your core business and take a break from the hours it takes to  fundraise and scout for new talent.

DIVERSE TALENT POOL

Our top tier women professionals cover the end-to-end needs of a startup – from legal to design, fundraising to marketing, sales to data science.

LARGE NETWORK

With over 15+ years in their chosen fields, our team of professionals have a wide network of contacts and can make the proper introductions when the time is right.

EQUITY FOR SERVICE

We know how taxing it is to outlay cash for resources at this stage. That’s why we align ourselves with the goals and results of your startup by focusing primarily on equity based compensation.

WOMEN DRIVEN

As women we have a unique perspective and life experience that we bring to projects and businesses. We also understand the challenges women founders experience navigating the male-dominated startup ecosystem.
