Co-founder love stories
BY JULIA STEELE, MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, IFUNDWOMEN
Here at IFundWomen, we’re all about giving you access to the capital, coaching, and community you need to turn your passion project into a real business.
One of the ways we see entrepreneurs utilizing our IFundWomen community is to do “co-founder dating,” i.e. to find the perfect partner for their business that they can commit to.
There are many scenarios in which an entrepreneur brings on a co-founder:
- The creative visionary founder brings on a technical co-founder to spec and build the actual product
- The solo founder brings on a co-founder to share in the highs, the lows, the panic, and the success of running a startup
- A tech-minded founder brings on a sales whiz co-founder to facilitate growth
And the benefits of having multiple co-founders are well documented.
In honor of Galentine’s Day, we talked to four co-founder teams from the IFundWomen community with solid relationships. Take notes, ladies.
And if you’re looking for a co-founder, join IFundWomen’s Slack community. Hopefully you’ll find the one you’re looking for.

Want to crush your 2020 goals? Meet Zeina
BY ZEINA MUNA, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, IFUNDWOMEN
Hi, I’m Zeina!
I’m IFundWomen’s Business Development Director and Goal Setting Coach. That means I work closely with each member of our coaching community to help them determine their vision, articulate their top three priorities, and create a personalized roadmap to achieving their goals.
The top three priorities my Coaching clients identified needing help with in 2019 were:
1️⃣ How to become a thought leader
2️⃣ How to untangle a messy ball of next steps and to-do lists
3️⃣ How to create an engaged pipeline of potential customers
If any of these sound familiar, I’d love to chat with you. My DMs are always open.
I’m a big believer in the power of community, coaching, and mentoring. 48% of women cite the lack of access to mentors as a major barrier: people who have been there, done that and can show them the ropes. We’re simply not at our best when we work alone.
