But with persistence and preparation, you can find both an audience and funding, and get your dream business off the ground.

Take it from Sevetri Wilson, one of Inc. Magazine’s 100 Female Founders building world-changing companies. At only 22 years old, she founded her first company, Solid Ground Innovations, and built it out to a 7-figure enterprise.

  • The correct way to dive into the hiring process
  • Preparing to raise money
  • Building a tech company as a non-technical founder
  • How to select the right accelerators, programs, and pitch competitions
  • Creating wealth while building a business

This conversation is perfect for small business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs and creative dreamers alike. You’ll walk away inspired and ready to hit the ground running with all your great ideas, the road ahead be darned.
