Hi, I’m Lisa. I’m a long-time startup funding strategist, and the former coaching lead at Women Founders Network, where alumnae have raised over $100 million since 2013.

My specialty is working with early-stage startups going through the fundraising process raise the money they need and grow so they can realize their vision.

I also serve as a mentor at accelerator programs including Techstars Los Angeles and the SAM Preccelerator, and as a coach to conferences including Allbright’s Pitch Day with HSBC and Salesforce’s Dreampitch events, preparing founders to pitch to all-star panels of investors, including Mark Cuban, Chris Sacca and will.i.am.

If I look familiar, it may be because I speak regularly on issues related to startups, tech and women in business, have been featured in The Huffington Post, Business Rockstars, Women 2.0, the Standing Out podcast, GenHERation and StartupNation.

My COVID side passion project has been creating a podcast called Untold Silicon Valley, a podcast dedicated to the forgotten and almost-forgotten histories of Silicon Valley’s first decades (now available on Apple Podcasts and other major podcast platforms).

Things I can help you with:

- Advice and feedback as you’re prepping your investor pitch, pitch deck, investor one-sheet, etc.
- Advice on startup fundraising strategy.
- Mock investor Q&A.
- Business plan feedback.
- Prep for speaking from stage for Demo Days and conferences.
- Career change advice and interview prep.

I’m always happy to connect, so please reach out!
