Help us change the odds for female entrepreneurs
In 2021, women-led startups garnered just 2.4% of all venture capital funding in the US. In 2022, that number dropped to roughly 1.9%. So, although more capital is available, early-stage companies led by women are getting even less of it than they were pre-pandemic.
At the GUILD, we developed an 8-week entrepreneurship program, which has been dubbed "mini-MBA" for first-time female entrepreneurs.
It's a best-in-class program that enables entrepreneurs launch their business with the support of 40+ entrepreneurship experts, the help of their peers as well as the program host Anne Cocquyt and guest speakers.
More than 150 entrepreneurs graduated from the program and have gone on to raise funding, get paying customers and hire teams. Check the program website or hear from our founders.
Unlike other programs, the GUILD Academy takes busy schedules of female entrepreneurs into account. We offer self-care and mindset exercises that have proven to help underrepresented entrepreneurs tackle challenges unique to them.
We put together a library of proprietary guides, checklists, and templates that are tailored to early-stage entrepreneurs.
Join us at the end of the program at our startup showcase and hear the pitches.
Help us move the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the right direction and be part of creating a more equitable playing field where all ideas are taken into consideration for the greater good of everybody involved in entrepreneurship and innovation.

A note from our founder:
Now more than ever, the world needs your ideas and the solutions you create to solve problems for your future customers.
That's why we created the 8-week GUILD Academy program to help more female entrepreneurs and underrepresented founders launch their own businesses and raise funding.
Thank you for supporting the founders who are applying to participate and can't afford the tuition.
