Four of a Kind

In this week’s episode, Grace and Michelle interview Nicki Carrea, the founder and CEO of Genuine Glow. She talks about her experience working at a Fortune 500 company and how she applied that experience to building her own company and growing it to a $2M business in less than four years. She also shares two pieces of advice she received from her mentors that she thinks about frequently as well as a few tips for those looking to start their own companies. You can connect with Nicki on LinkedIn and/or check out Genuine Glow’s website here

Here are a couple of tidbits of information that we referenced during this episode in case you’d like to check them out:

  • Great news! Two female-founded startups (Glossier and Rent The Runway) recently entered the unicorn status, being valued at $1.2 billion and $1 billion, respectively, as reported by TechCrunch
  • Not so good news… According to All Raise, only 9% of US VCs are women (this includes partners, GPs and MDs with check-writing abilities at firms with fund size > $25M). 
  • But the good news is… Your Four of a Kind hosts (especially Grace) and many others out there are very passionate about improving that!
