Washington, DC, May 10, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Elegant Entrepreneur: A Female Founder’s Guide to Starting & Growing Your First Company author, Danielle Tate, has launched an Audiobook Kickstarter campaign to provide free audiobooks of her popular title to female entrepreneurs in emerging economies. In a recent IFC study cited by Forbes, women in emerging markets invest 90 percent of their income back into their families and communities, compared with 35 percent for men. The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to lower the barriers to entry and success for female founders around the world, and to create a ripple effect of women building businesses to improve their lives, their families, their communities, and their economies.
Strategic partnerships with She Inspires Her Network, an online platform for sharing stories of female entrepreneurs from emerging markets, Connecting Founders, an organization focused on women-led businesses in Southeast Asia, and Jitahidi Group, a career development agency in Kenya that seeks to equip youth with the tools and resources they need to excel in a global economy, will help distribute the free audiobooks to aspiring female entrepreneurs around the globe.
Elegant Entrepreneur helps women reach their full potential as entrepreneurs. Many regions in the world do not have access to Kindles or Amazon, and an audiobook format allows author and entrepreneur, Danielle Tate, to give her book to the women who need it most.
“We are all global citizens with a moral obligation to solve the problems that face our communities, cultures, and generations,” said Danielle Tate, author of Elegant Entrepreneur. “Educating and empowering women around the world to build companies that solve problems is the solution to breaking the cycle of poverty and making the world a better place.”
The audiobook of Elegant Entrepreneur will be hosted on Amazon as an MP3 file. This allows anyone with a device that can read MP3 files, such as a phone, to immediately listen to the book without downloading it. Kickstarter funds will be used toward studio recording and production of the audiobook. The more funding received, the more audiobooks will be given to the women who need them. Any surplus will be used to fund the translation of Elegant Entrepreneur into other languages to create even more accessibility to aspiring global entrepreneurs.
Elegant Entrepreneur offers key information and concepts from idea to exit. It discusses the early stages of evaluating an idea, understanding market demands, pitching ideas, building a team of partners and employees, launching, fundraising, marketing and growing a company, handling competition, and knowing when to sell. Tate navigates complex business terrain with clarity, insight, and, yes, elegance. Readers are given the chance to see if entrepreneurship is right for them, and stand to gain the freedom, flexibility, and job satisfaction that comes with founding and running one’s own business.
