Financial media company DailyWorth announced this week that they have raised an additional $1 million in Series A funding led by DFJ Gotham. Previously, the company founded by Amanda Steinberg raised $2 million in Series A last year.
Having been a programmer at many venture-backed NYC startup companies in her twenties, Amanda learned what makes an Internet startup successful: “a clear, simple revenue model; scalable technology; and a valid problem in a large market to solve.”
She set out to build her vision to deliver financial advice to women and give them more worth, sharing her journey with the community. Amanda advises women to change your relationship to failure.
“When business hits a bump and I start getting that panicky feeling, I remind myself that revenue solves all problems and turn my attention to generating dollars. When you have income, you can face anything,” Amanda shared on DailyWorth earlier this year.
Amanda spoke about growth hacking and paid marketing at the Women 2.0 PITCH NYC conference last November. We congratulate her on the recent raise and look forward to watching her empire grow!
