Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is: A Convo About Funding Women Fully with Cate Luzio of @weareluminary - S4:E2

Finding Fearless

03-05-2023 • 1 hr 18 mins

Welcome back to Finding Fearless! This week we have Cate Luzio of @weareluminary on to talk about what happens when women come together to support and fund each other without ulterior motives. This episode was originally streamed live on LinkedIn and is available!

Cate brings to the table all of her insight from her background in banking, as well as her experience founding Luminary, a community and co-working space she built with her own money. Cate is passionate about sustainable business funding and believes all women should have the ability to build profitable businesses that don’t rely on investors.

In this episode, Cate and I cover:
- The importance of valuing and investing in your own business (and cheering other women on!)
- The different ways to fund a scaling business beyond just VC funding
- The mental pressure to scale your business, even if you feel you aren’t ready

If you want to connect with Cate, you can follow her on Instagram and LinkedIn. You can also follow Luminary on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter!

Their upcoming stops will be in San Diego, Houston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, NYC, and Atlanta!
