Hello! If you are an entrepreneur looking for help with your business and funding strategy, let's talk. I am passionate about helping founders realize their dreams in a healthy and sustainable way. Leveraging my capital markets background and years in the startup community, I work with founders who want to communicate their business and investment opportunity in the best and most authentic way.
My consulting services include business and funding strategies, business plans, and pitch decks. And I can connect you with financial model resources.
I love working one-on-one with founders on their business planning, investor pitches, and funding strategies.
I love reviewing pitch decks and helping founders articulate their unique story while addressing the key points every investor needs to know.
I often speak at conferences and workshops about funding, getting investor-ready, and women entrepreneurship.
The multiplier effect of women achieving financial success is significant, impacting everything from economics to politics to climate change. Women have the opportunity to use their economic and investing power to build great businesses, generate sustainable wealth... and change the world!
Fueled by this passion, I created Fortuna to help women entrepreneurs access capital, and I co-founded We Are Enough to educate women on the power of investing in women.
Fortuna is for women entrepreneurs looking to create their ideal funding strategy through the proprietary Fortuna Funding Framework. Visit this site to learn more about online courses and resources.
We Are Enough is a non-profit organization with a mission is to educate women globally on WHY and HOW to invest in women-led businesses and/or with a gender lens. Visit this site to learn more about how to leverage your investing power.
As the founder of Stiletto Dash (a consulting firm), I work with early-stage companies on their business and funding strategy and on getting investor-ready. Passionate about helping women entrepreneurs access capital, I created the proprietaty Fortuna Funding Framework for female founders to develop their ideal funding strategy.
I am very active in the Los Angeles entrepreneur community, including as a frequent speaker, mentor for Founder Institute and the Stubbs Alderton Markiles LLP Preccelerator Program, pitch coach for organizations such as the Women Founders Network, and am the former Co-Chair of Women in LAVA (Los Angeles Venture Association). I am a Super Activator and the 2016 L.A. Lead for SheEO, an innovative new model funding model that calls upon women to commit $1,000 each into a perpetual fund to invest in women-led ventures.
My background is as a capital markets expert with 10 years previously in business development at Toronto Stock Exchange, including as the Director, Business Development & Strategy. I have advised many companies on the going public process and can provide an understanding of private and public financing options in Canada and the United States.
I hold an MBA in Enterprise Development and a BA in English, and have completed a certification as a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner.
“Delilah is an amazing pitch coach! I particularly liked how she mathematically broke down our go to market strategy and financial model in a way that no other advisor was able. Through her guidance and organization we created an awesome pitch that we still use to this day. ”
“I started working with Delilah two years ago and my business opportunities tripled. I was very skeptical that following the principles that were suggested would work for my business. So many concepts seem to be designed for people who have an MBA so it was overwhelming. Now I feel like I got the MBA-like confidence and the support needed to compete on any business stage.”
