Nicole is best known for her ability to create strategic relationships that facilitate growth, exposure and extreme value. She’s considered a Master at connecting the dots!
Nicole’s Corporate journey started in 2008 in the Staffing industry where she gained experience orchestrating mass staffing strategies for companies such as BET, Viacom and Comcast. In 2014, Nicole shifted gears a bit and took her talents to South Florida, where she shared her expertise with the renowned e-commerce start- up Chewy.com. It was with Chewy that Nicole found a true love for the intricacies of the start-up space. In 2014, she launched her first consulting business and applied her expertise to small business owners and their budding businesses. Her ability to sell and build teams led her to a stint in network marketing that amassed a tremendous amount of supporters and over 6 figures in earnings. She realized that network marketing wasn’t quite for her and refocused on business coaching, corporate strategy and business development for small and medium-sized businesses. Nicole gained the opportunity to consult for several technology start-ups that needed funding and ultimately fell in love with another aspect of the start-up space... fundraising.
With a true understanding of what businesses needed to succeed, Nicole decided to launch her own firm focused on helping entrepreneurs and small business owners understand and navigate the roadmap to success. She has since coached over 200 entrepreneurs, helped launch over 75 small businesses, and helped raise millions of dollars in startup capital. Nicole also released her first book “The Boss’ Guide to Elevation: Strategies for Success” in 2020.
“I’m just a college drop-out that was determined to make a name for myself in rooms full of Ivy Leaguers. Real life experiences have taught me more than I could’ve ever imagined, and I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with those determined to make their dreams become a profitable reality.”
Nicole continues to build 1925’s catalogue with a slew of partnerships in the Tech and Cannabis space. From inception, to funding to launch, Nicole’s expertise has made 1925 a “one stop start-up shop”!
