Episode 185: Helen Adeosun - CEO & Co-Founder, CareAcademy

The VentureFizz Podcast

CareAcademy recently announced its Series A round of funding, but I need to put this accomplishment into perspective. Raising capital is hard for any entrepreneur, but Helen had some extra obstacles in her way - a pandemic, she is a female founder, and a Black entrepreneur. The percentages for each independent scenario for raising capital are not favorable, never mind putting everything all together. No one could have predicted obstacles around a pandemic, but the other numbers around the other obstacles need to be improved, which I hope is finally starting to happen. But, as you’ll hear in this podcast interview, Helen is a resilient entrepreneur and her process of fundraising was incredibly thorough. It’s a process that all entrepreneurs need to pay attention to.CareAcademy is the leading home care & home health workforce empowerment platform, upskilling and preparing workers for the growing eldercare market and home care model.In this episode of our podcast, we cover:* The importance of storytelling and its impact on your company.* Helen’s background story as a multi-generational entrepreneur and experience in education.* A deep dive into CareAcademy and the opportunity ahead to transform the caregiver market.* How they were able to adapt & respond to Covid-19.* And so much more.If you like the show, please remember to subscribe and review us on iTunes, Soundcloud, Spotify, Stitcher, or Google Play.
