“DARE TO LAUNCH - Mini MBA for First-Time Entrepreneurs” is an entrepreneurship essential that puts you in the driver seat of your business and motivates you to step it up and gain an unfair advantage when launching your business.
No matter if you are setting out to build a billion-dollar Silicon Valley startup or a legacy family business, we all start at the same point: With an idea and a big vision.
This workbook accompanies the book and gives you easy-to-implement step-by-step exercises referenced in the book to create the roadmap for ambitious entrepreneurs like you to launch your business.
When you complete the workbook, you will have gone through all the exercises needed to launch and pitch your business.
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 for testimonials 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 guides, checklists, and templates that are tailored to early-stage entrepreneurs.
The participants pitch at the end of the program at our startup showcase with investors.
The book "Dare To Launch" and the accompanying workbook summarize the steps in the program that has already helped many entrepreneurs launch their dream business and find success.

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 I wrote this book and we created the 8-week GUILD Academy program to help more female entrepreneurs and underrepresented founders launch their own businesses and raise funding.
All proceeds from the book go towards scholarships for the GUILD academy program for founders who cannot afford the tuition.
