“Your business will get better when you get better.” ~ Mandela SH Dixon, Founder and CEO, FounderGym
Get ready for some high impact inspiration and aspiration from our guest, Mandela SH Dixon!
She’s the phenomenal Founder & CEO of FounderGym, the first and leading online program to train underrepresented founders how to raise money and build sustainable and profitable businesses. In less than 3 years FounderGym has helped founders from 22 countries raise over $43 million!
A former public school teacher, education policy researcher, and PhD candidate, Mandela began her career in tech as a startup founder, building Tioki, which helped hundreds of schools across the country secure great teachers for their students.
After a successful exit, Mandela became the Global Director of Startup Weekend (acquired by Techstars), followed by 2 years at Kapor Capital as the Founding Portfolio Services Director, before launching FounderGym in 2017.
Whenever I need inspiration and actionable advice to keep me motivated and moving forward with my work, I hop on Mandela’s Twitter or Instagram feed. You can FEEL her high-impact energy and HEAR her hands clapping like a coach on the sidelines, cheering you on to be and bring your BEST.
