This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to present and practice your idea: constructive feedback and strong motivation to work further. Connecting the ideas discussed during the course with potential investors would be an excellent idea. Many motivated women are ready to develop their businesses, and helping them as a ‘startup hub’ could benefit the FEM-START company and make it more popular.

The course has been amazing. I found outstanding value. I loved the positive and enthusiastic approach. Just think about the word ‘demystifying,” which can lessen the value end and makes you perceive that the course is focused on the complaining part, which I discover with great relief that it is not. I feel empowered. I feel that the course helped me grow, and this is the first value for me. And the teacher has amazing contagious energy. Excellent conversation and a thought-provoking start. Clear message and is straight to the point. It answered many of my questions and created some more—excellent, helpful content.
