Women Are Being Denied Critical Resources to Launch and Grow Small Businesses

Despite our contributions, female-identifying founders received less than a quarter of small business bank loans and a tiny fraction (less than 3 percent) of venture capital. On average, we received smaller investments and less favorable terms than men. My Founder Story is on a mission to disrupt the status quo.

Raise Your Voice and Increase Your Revenue

Women who confidently communicate their business purpose and impact are more likely to receive funding and other critical resources to ensure success. My Founder Story provides tools and guidance for fierce founders like you to clarify and communicate your purpose with confidence.

Build Your Brand on Purpose

Brands like Beautycounter, Eileen Fisher and Wildfang were each built around a clearly defined mission rooted in the founder’s WHY. My Founder Story works closely with women-founded purpose-driven businesses to clarify your WHY and communicate it in your brand story. Our process empowers you to engage audiences, influence decisions, inspire communities and ignite action.
