In part 3 of our interview with Investor, Strategist & Speaker Kelly Hoey we are talking all about acquiring investment. When it comes to seeking investment, Kelly has no time for BS “If you want money without ties, you better have your own money or you better go win the lottery!”

According to the muse, women entrepreneurs begin with about 1/8 of the funding male owned ventures receive, and women operated venture backed companies have 12% higher revenues than those operated by men.
