CareAcademy recently announced its Series A round of funding, but I need to put this accomplishment into perspective. Raising capital is hard for any entrepreneur, but Helen had some extra obstacles in her way - a pandemic, she is a female founder, and a Black entrepreneur. The percentages for each independent scenario for raising capital are not favorable, never mind putting everything all together. No one could have predicted obstacles around a pandemic, but the other numbers around the other obstacles need to be improved, which I hope is finally starting to happen. But, as you’ll hear in this podcast interview, Helen is a resilient entrepreneur and her process of fundraising was incredibly thorough. It’s a process that all entrepreneurs need to pay attention to. CareAcademy is the leading home care & home health workforce empowerment platform, upskilling and preparing workers for the growing eldercare market and home care model. In this episode of our podcast, we cover: * The importance of storytelling and its impact on your company. * Helen’s background story as a multi-generational entrepreneur and experience in education. * A deep dive into CareAcademy and the opportunity ahead to transform the caregiver market. * How they were able to adapt & respond to Covid-19. * And so much more.
