“Jenny helped me understand that there is another way to raise money besides the venture capital route. In one weekend, she gave me the confidence to raise investments from people who were truly invested in the mission of Recompose. I consider my workshop with Jenny to have been a critical step in building this ecological death care company. Thank you, Jenny!”

Katrina Spade, RECOMPOSE


“Jenny gave me the tools I needed to offer an investment opportunity to supportive investors. We’re offering equity, but we are not giving up any control. We’ve had a remarkable response, and we couldn’t have done it without Jenny’s teaching and support.”
