Breaking Venture Capital Glass Ceilings with Lindsay McLean
Show Notes

We talk often about how difficult it is for women entrepreneurs to obtain funding so when we come across someone who was successful and can act as a champion for us all, we must value what we can learn from them. This week’s episode 81 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about breaking venture capital glass ceilings!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Lindsay McLean is sharing how she secured an impressive amount of venture capital for her business idea and actionable steps you can take right now to advocate for the funding to get your own ideas off of the ground. Some of the things Lindsay and I cover in this episode are:

  • How Home Lister is disrupting the real estate market by giving sellers the control of selling their own home with the support of a brokerage team leading them along the way.
  • Lindsay’s experience obtaining venture capital in a market where women have a challenging time getting funded. 
  • The ways in which investors provide value to your business far beyond the financial support and what to look for in finding investors aligned with your goals. 
  • Advice for women entrepreneurs actively seeking venture capital. 

There are so many obstacles in every new startup, finding venture capital being only one of the many, but what is important is that you just keep going, no matter what comes your way. 

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern businesswoman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
