Episode 106: How To Think Beyond Traditional Entrepreneurship Models and Get Funding For Your Health Equity Business
Manage episode 306780763 series 2818098
Our entrepreneurial story is often built around this hustle and grow methodology but if you were able to start with 6 figures towards your dream business instead of hustling to get them, think about how much farther you could get. That’s why episode 106 of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast is part one of our dreams with deadlines series on finding funding as a black woman entrepreneur!
The Idea to Impact Accelerator On Demand is a one-day intensive workshop that will transform your business idea into an actionable massive profit plan. We get to work using my 4 step business building formula that ensures you have clear action steps and goals for each monthly milestone.
Instead of sitting on an idea wondering if it’ll be profitable, you leave with the confidence and the proven concept needed to create a stream of income that will allow you to complement or replace your income as a physician.
In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of exploring other business models outside of the traditional build, fund, grow model and thinking outside of the box to fund your dream business outside of a partnership with a healthcare facility.
