The Startup Diaries: Resources for Women Entrepreneurs

 

The event calendar for ladies in business is already looking rather busy for the month of March. Although traditionally a very celebrated holiday in Eastern Europe, International Womens’ Day is becoming recognised as a day of significance in UK as well. Great timing for a post summarising key resources for early and established women entrepreneurs 😊 On a different note, according to latest Pitchbook data, women have raised a record amount of VC money in 2018($2.3B in first 10 months) and 23 unicorn companies worldwide have a female CEO (privately held start-ups valued at over $1 billion).

The Startup Diaries: New Year’s Resolutions for Startup Success

New Year. A Fresh Start. 365 days to be better and do better. The reflections of the year that passed give way to hopes and aspirations for the New Year ahead in the first week of January. What are your goals for 2019? Prioritise them and write them down - a goal without a plan is simply a wish. What about New Year’s resolutions? A lot of us start the year with a long list of healthy(er) habits to adopt or develop. As well as the promise to eliminate the ones which prevent us from becoming the person we’d like to be. Below is my take on 2019 resolutions, inspired by my start-up journey.
