You already know it takes 115+ hours and 86 video calls to find one new partner to invest in your business.
You already know this year has been a juggling act, negotiating tantrums with your two-year-old while negotiating deals with fortune 500 brand partners.
You already know the numbers don’t make sense. Female founded companies outperform male founded companies 63%... yet as women, we receive less than 2% of funding.
You may not know that there is a woman on a mission to change that. Enter, Dream Ventures...
DREAM VENTURES is a female-focused fund and incubator. We have a simple focus: Connect female-owned businesses to AWESOME investors and land that DREAM deal you’ve always dreamed about.
We’ve worked with female founders for the past 2 years helping them raise $5 million+ plus with top tier VC's like Lerer Hippeau and strategic angels around the country.
We’ve helped land deals with Amex, P&G, Sephora, and many more.
We exist to flip this industry around and, like you, we can't do it alone. When you support Dream Ventures, you’re not just supporting our business, you’re supporting hundreds of women-owned businesses.
Ladies, let’s do this.
Annie is the former co-founder of Beautified, a key architect behind the enterprise strategy and development that drove the successful fundraise with Hannah Bronfman. From leading partnerships for Regi and Moonalker Ventures, Dream Ventures also powers communities through Angel Investor meetups and events. Annie has been featured in Vogue, NY Times, TechCrunch, Entrepreneur Magazine, and many others based on her work in business, fashion, lifestyle, and tech.
With a portfolio featuring some of the best female-founded companies, Annie understands consumer behavior and the key role of B2B partnerships to scale and grow ideas into big successes. She oversaw $250K raised by 8 female investor “angels” to help fund Beautified’s development, and her fundraising efforts to empower new business start-ups don’t end there. Annie helped usher in capital from 12 strategic female investors for iFundWomen, made intros for pre-seed round for MOONS and brought in over seven figures combined from strategic angels & VC lead to fund the new female-founded skincare company, Topicals, among others.
Annie most enjoys working with entrepreneurs to help bring their vision of success into the stratosphere of possibility. In addition to funding, strategizing, or partnering with the brands in the portfolio, she is an advisor for Poppy Seed Health, MOONS, IFundWomen and Topicals.
ACCESS TO LEARNINGS
Creating accessible tools and sharing learnings with as many founders as possible takes more than the waking hours of one women. We have an ambitious product roadmap that we have been refining over the past years while actively fundraising for other companies. This infusion of capital will allow for a rollout of offerings that will mobilize a Dream Team. Want a sneak peak? You can snag one as a reward with your contribution before they are released in 2021.
Dream Ventures’ power lies with our community. The connections are as much a part of turning dreams into reality as Annie herself. Just as iFundWomen turned to Dream Ventures when they were fundraising, Dream Ventures celebrates the incredible power of this platform.
With the help of backers, we can share Dream Ventures with more women businesses. We will:
- increase the size of the Dream Team, allowing for more 1:1 support for women businesses in a critical stage where they need a wingwoman.
- create online tools and resources that accelerate growth and make learnings accessible
- build a community for female founders to support one another.
