That’s so amazing that she’s supporting the fund in addition to starring in the ads. I’m just wondering if the fund will also help the entrepreneurs secure additional funding. If the average check size is only $25k, it’s highly likely that they’ll need additional funding.

Just one wrinkle in an all around unimaginable story - I’m almost finished with the book and it is mind blowing.

I wholeheartedly agree that it’s easier to leave and start something new if you have the security of savings and a support system while you figure out your new “venture”, but that is unfortunately not a reality for the majority of women. I also believe sometimes, in the words of A League of Their Own, the hard is what makes it great and sometimes, if there are no other options, it’s possibly to make change by calling out issues and advocating for other women. It might not make an impact but the more squeaky wheels, the more likely we are to get the oil.
