1023. How To Break Through Barriers As A Female Entrepreneur With Rebecca Minkoff & Ali Wyatt

Multi-passionate entrepreneurs Rebecca Minkoff and Ali Wyatt are co-founders of The Female Founder Collective, an amazing community of like-minded women who crave education on how to develop their business ideas. Members have access to events, programs, and workshops specifically designed to fill in the information gap that so many female entrepreneurs experience. 

In our conversation, they explain why it’s harder for women to raise capital and share stories of how they continue to work through those financial challenges. They also give advice for female founders at all different stages of business and chat about what they’re most looking forward to at the upcoming Female Founders Day event.
