"Amplify has offered me entrance into a room that I may not otherwise have been able to enter. I got a chance to see women doing the work of running the financial world. I met people who were there to willingly encourage me, pour into me, and offer to be helpful with my startup. I learned about emerging trends in finance, and got confirmation that I was moving in the right direction. I made friends in the cohort who I can be in support of, and who will support me as we are going on our journeys to Amplify our missions and visions for our businesses."
