We’re excited to continue our #WomenInPower video series with Laura O’Neill, co-founder
What is Women in Power?
Ellevest talked to four successful women entrepreneurs in the food, fashion, tech and PR industries about how they overcame the challenges of raising money and building a business. No BS, no glossing over the grit, just woman-to-woman advice from influential #WomenInPower. Did you miss week 1? Catch up here.
Why do we need this conversation? Because:
Companies run entirely by women only get about 2.2% of venture capital dollars.
With those kinds of odds, it’s no surprise that only about 17% of venture-backed startups were led by a woman founder in 2017.
But once they launch, women-founded companies outperform companies led by men.
Next up on our #WomenInPower video series is Laura O’Neill, the co-founder of Van Leeuwen Ice Cream. Find out how she and her business partners turned a single food truck into a $20 million business.
“I didn’t go to college, and I’ve been able to build this. I think when you’re young, you doubt yourself in many ways, and so I would just tell 25-year old Laura that “You’re smart, and you’re doing a great job, and believe in yourself.” –Laura O’Neill, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream
