Ep 14 - $0 to $1.2M, Shark Tank & Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2 Years
YOU DON'T NEED A LOT OF MONEY TO START. Your startup doesn't need to be tech focused. Kelsey Moreira shares how she turned her $2000 investment into a $1.2M startup with purpose in 2 years.
Kelsey Moreira, former manager at Intel turned entrepreneur, shares how she ditched her 10-year tech career to start and run Doughp, a cookie dough business. She started with only $2,000 for a cookie dough cart and cookie dough materials.
In this episode, you'll hear her amazing milestones on her journey to build a thriving business, including
- In 3 hours, she sold out her first batch of MVP (aka her cookie dough as her Minimum Viable Product) at a park and got her market research done.
- In 1 month, her business started to be profitable.
- In 7 months, she got her first outside investment to open a store in San Francisco.
- In 2 years, she's on ABC's Shark Tank and the list of Forbes 30 Under 30 Class 2020.
On Shark Tank, Barbara Corcoran called her “the most sophisticated store owner she’s ever seen.”
On top of all these accomplishments, Kelsey has openly shared her life in recovery from alcohol addiction and started the #Doughp4Hope initiative to donate money to causes that support and reduce stigma on mental health and substance abuse.
