Hi @tiarafeaster I would advise to setup informational interview with people in similar companies. I know that there are other companies in this space, try to get in touch w people in that industry and get acquainted with the business challenges they are working with. Also start conducting market research with potential customers, maybe build a blog or newsletter to build a customer base that can be your beta testers. Funding is almost the last step in the setup bc funding comes once you have a proven concept and beta clients, potentially. Connect with other female founders in the femtech space to learn more about the funding process. You can also try to get an intern to support with social media , thought you might want to get good at social bc a LOT of brands sell on social.Hope this helps!
