Are you a female entrepreneur? Have you already grown a business for someone else? Are you ready to launch one for yourself?


Andrea was our secret weapon at the early stage of our company. She helped us, tell our story, create a compelling business plan, figure out how much money we needed to raise AND was instrumental in preparing us to raise our first round of capital successfully. 

She dug into the soul of our company and from there created the strategy that enabled us to raise our round of capital successfully. From templates, to talking points to negotiating - Andrea was there with us every step of the way. I would not recommend starting without her!

Raising money sounds sexy and, in the current climate almost necessary. It’s not.  

Finding the right balance between keeping the equity in your company and giving it enough fuel to scale is the key to success. We teach you the lingo, math, strategy and storytelling to find that balance and make fundraising a successful endeavor in the case you need it.

Together we will:

  • Audit your current financial status and projections.
  • Create a financial model, so you can build a profitable business and determine how much money you need to raise.

Before raising money, your story has to be tight, compelling and irresistible, your visuals have to be on point, and your strategy has to be flawless.

Andrea Minkow Consulting will help pressure test your business model and shape your story into a compelling pitch that motivates investment.

Together we will:

  • Go deep and audit your pitch, value proposition, materials and strategy.
  • Clarify your vision.
  • Hone your story, pitch materials and value proposition to make your business appealing to investors.
  • Develop a step-by-step strategy from messaging, to targeting, to closing.
