Be a Money Magnet
Step Into Your Power and Get Funded
July 24 & 25, 2019
Preservation Park—Oakland, CA
A retreat for mission-driven business owners
who identify as female
This retreat is for you IF...
You know you have a game changing business that has the potential to make a BIG difference in the world. But how do you go about getting that influx of cash you need?
As a CEO, you know your job is to capitalize your company, but the funding strategies and sources you’ve encountered up until now don’t feel aligned with what you value most.
It's hard to get excited about all those angel groups, pitch competitions, accelerator programs, and investment funds that you hear about as potential funding sources.
Deep down, you know there must be a better way to raise funding—one that feels aligned with your values.
Guess What? You’re Right!
As a heart-centered woman entrepreneur, the advice you’re hearing about how to raise money is probably wrong for you.
There is a way to raise money that allows you to grow your business on your terms and stay true to what made you start your business in the first place.
Your fundraising strategy CAN be an expression of what makes you and your company unique.
You CAN be part of a tribe of other women who are also breaking the mold and raising investment capital on their terms.
What To Expect
For the first time ever, we are excited to open up the Jenny Kassan Consulting Retreat beyond our current clients to any mission-driven business owners who identify as female.
At this intimate retreat in beautiful downtown Oakland, we will roll up our sleeves and dig in to do the work of designing and beginning to implement your ideal capital raising strategy.
To help you prepare for the retreat, we are offering a 5-week virtual course in which Jenny will guide you through the steps in her book, Raise Capital on Your Own Terms.
This course will allow you to come to the retreat with a draft capital raising plan in place, so you can dive right in to addressing your biggest questions and challenges with our expert support.
At the retreat
We will refine your plan, answer questions, and work on the beginning steps of implementation.
We will also tackle some of the fears and doubts that might get in your way when raising investment capital for your business.
You will be in the company of supportive women and have permission to get vulnerable.
You will have a one-on-one follow-up phone call with Jenny.
You will be invited to join our WeCapital Community—a mastermind group for women entrepreneurs and a place to meet investors and entrepreneurial leaders who want to support women-owned businesses.

The combination of the five-week pre-course, the retreat, and membership in the WeCapital Community will set you up to be a powerful leader with the ability to resource your business in a big way.
You will be armed with the knowledge, tools, and support needed to take the reins and grow your business on your terms.

Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions? We've got answers!

What if I’m not sure I’m ready to raise investment funding for my business?
The combination of the five-week course and the retreat will give you the information you need to determine whether raising funds is right for you and whether you are ready to do it. You will learn about diverse fundraising strategies that you can turn to whenever you’re ready.
Will I meet potential investors?
On the second night, we will be hosting a reception for investors. We have no way of knowing who will come, but it is certainly possible you will meet someone who may become an investor in your company. The reception is not a place to “pitch” investors, but a place to get to know new people and potentially follow up with them later to explore whether there is a match of values and interests that could ultimately lead to an investment.
Will meals be provided?
Dinner is provided on the first night and there will be drinks and bites at the reception on the second night. Other meals are on your own. The retreat is located near numerous cafes, restaurants, and fast food establishments.
