I hope all the founders who follow me check out what @apbyers is doing. Yes it is a paid platform to help founders learn to pitch and other things but it's a price that is reasonable with high quality content

With so much of #startupadvice all over the map, founders need a source that will help them take the first step. Go check out @ScroobiousInc, all early startup #Founders. Will save ur time.
📢💰For any underrepresented founders in my network looking to raise capital - I HIGHLY suggest you check out Allison Byers' company Scroobious. Wow. It's absolutely genius and, for me, a 'I wish I had known about this six months ago' kind of thing. 💯
I am sooooo humbled and grateful! THANK YOU @apbyers for this and for creating @ScroobiousInc to help underestimated founders like myself! We appreciate YOU more than you know!
A shout-out of appreciation to @apbyers. My startup is part of her beta program @ScroobiousInc. Their support and guidance have been phenomenal. #Founders #Startups #Boston
My big shout for the month goes to this infinite well of knowledge Allison Byers founder of Scroobious!!! Whether it’s critiquing my pitch deck or expanding my thoughts on ideas, Allison comes in clutch with the resources!🙌🏾
Allison Byers is a standout presenter who delivers value and knowledge with clarity, depth, and enthusiasm. She engaged our startup founders in a way that increased engagement, generated clear takeaways, and had them raving long after her presentation was done. I would recommend Allison to any organization or program that empowers founders around their pitch.
@apbyers, founder of @ScroobiousInc, killed it today for the @ParentpreneurF community. If you need a pitch deck but are stuck, you missed a treat. But enjoy this important excerpt about whether or not to include an ask in your pitch deck. Let's go! 🚀

VC is Overlooking $4 Trillion
Investing in diverse founders isn't just the right thing to do, it's the smart thing to do.
Research shows that female founders and diverse teams are under-invested and deliver better investment results. This makes them an undervalued asset class and a huge opportunity for the investors who source them. The data is shocking and discouraging, but at Scroobious we see opportunity.
3 out of 4 VC rounds go to non-diverse teams

For the founders who can't be lumped into a classification and don't fit traditional pattern matching. For the investors looking to put their money toward something or someone that speaks to you. For those who identify as underrepresented and struggle to network your way to the people and the resources you need to get funded or to invest.
We are building this for you.
