S2E5: Leslie Feinzaig About two years ago, Leslie Feinzaig founded Female Founders Alliance (FFA) after a frustrating experience in the pitching circuit with her own startup, Venture Kits. What started out as a Facebook group for a few female CEOs has grown into a large online network with hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals in just two years. Last year, FFA launched a startup accelerator consciously designed for women and non-binary founders seeking their first round of venture financing. After a runaway success with its first cohort, applications for the 2019 Ready Set Raise program are now open! Leslie is focused on spreading the message that women grow companies at three times the rate of men, but only get two percent of venture capital. Along with how she&rsquo;s helping change this landscape, hear her talk about growing up in Costa Rica, her interesting journey applying to business school, her tips for staying organized, and how everything touches her more deeply since becoming a mom.&nbsp;See for privacy information.
Leslie Feinzaig– From a Facebook Group to a Venture Capital Empire For Leslie Feinzaig, entrepreneurship was always deeply rooted in her family - her grandparents, father, and siblings were all self-employed. Growing up in Costa Rica, Leslie fought hard for more opportunity. Focusing on her education led her to study in London and then get accepted to Harvard Business School. She started her first business, Venture Kits, as a new mom before founding the phenomenal Female Founders Alliance. FFA started as a Facebook group meant for 25 women and grew into a 20,000-person empire. Today, passionate women at FFA gather together to help accelerate and grow female and non-binary venture capital.

Leslie Feinzaig (Female Founders Alliance CEO) on the business of FFA, finding market fit, and authenticity as an advantage On this episode of The Built in Seattle Podcast, I talked with  Leslie Feinzaig, Founder & CEO at Female Founders Alliance (FFA).For extras from this interview, subscribe to my weekly emailEpisode Highlights:Leslie's personal experiences raising VC that inspired FFA.Why FFA is a business, not a non-profit or "charitable cause."How Leslie knew she had founder/market fit.What needs to change in 20 years and how we'll know it's working.Why FFA started an accelerator to create a flywheel.How Leslie pivoted her way to product market fit and evolved with the community.Why Leslie just wanted to "do her job" and not have gender get in the way.The journey from 0 to 1500+ founders served.Why Leslie makes authenticity an advantage.Guest Bio:Leslie Feinzaig was born and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica, where her family — and her heart — still live to this day. She’s the granddaughter of Holocaust refugees who were refused entry into the U.S. in the 1930’s. Through generations, her family leaned on entrepreneurship, hard work and education to settle into their new home — values that, until recently, were mostly reserved for the males in the family.After securing permanent residency in the U.S. — and with it, the ability to switch jobs and join smaller companies — Leslie moved into tech startups. She led product management and marketing at Big Fish Games, going into their $1 billion acquisition. She then joined Julep Beauty, an Andreessen-Horowitz backed ecommerce startup, leading product management, front-end engineering, and digital marketing. She left Julep in 2015 to start her own company.The following year, when her daughter was 6 months old, Leslie launched Venture Kits — games that develop leadership skills through play. Her one-of-a-kind, inspirational concept quickly garnered critical acclaim and customer love. The experience of raising capital for this company, coupled with the realization that only two percent of venture capital is invested in female founders in the US, propelled Leslie to start the Female Founders Alliance in 2017.Today, Leslie leads FFA full time, dedicated to her personal mission of creating a more just world for her daughter. She was named one of Forbes Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful Women from Central America & the Caribbean, Seattle Magazine’s Most Influential People, and Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under 40. She’s a frequent speaker at events like TEDx Pura Vida, SXSW Interactive, Geekwire Summit, NW Angel Capital Conference, Seattle Magazine’s Daring Women, and more. Her writing has been featured in publications like Forbes, Entrepreneur, and AllthingsD. She lives in Seattle, Wash. with her husband and 3-year old daughter.Where to follow Leslie to follow Adam: Suggestions on who to interview? Email me anytime -
How to Raise Venture Capital for Female Entrepreneurs with Leslie Feinzaig of the Female Founder’s Alliance Over 90% of venture capital dollars are controlled by men. Until that number changes, women looking for VC money need to play the game. Guest Leslie Feinzaig wants to teach you the rules. Her company, the Female Founder’s Alliance, helps women entrepreneurs “communicate their story in a way that investors can rally behind.” She talks with Nancy about pitching to men, common pitfalls to avoid, and why women need to talk to each other about hot deals.
#131 - Connecting to Your Past and Your Future - with Leslie Feinzaig & Jerry Colonna Joining Jerry on this episode of the Reboot Podcast is Leslie Feinzaig, Founder & CEO of the Female Founders Alliance, whose mission is to accelerate the success of venture-scale, women and non-binary founded companies. In this conversation, Leslie shares how attempting to lead and manage her team amongst the fallout of a global pandemic has led her to shift her thoughts to family in distant countries. The granddaughter of Holocaust refugees and a Costa Rican native, Leslie left her country of origin when greater opportunities opened up abroad. Now a naturalized citizen of the United States, Leslie admits to feeling out of place and unwanted in her adopted home. In hearing her story, Jerry reminds Leslie that in turbulent times, often the best gift we can give ourselves is to search for and connect to a greater sense of purpose. For Leslie, the question “Why do I do what I do?” leads her back to family —past, present and future. Jerry encourages Leslie to remember the sacrifices of her ancestors (as well as her own) and to draw on that connection as a source of strength and inspiration. In connecting to her past and holding her wishes for the future, Leslie comes to realize her purpose will see her through this challenging present. Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts!
