Ladies, Get Your First Startup Going! 1-on-1 Mentorship to Bring Your Idea to Life as a Nontechnical Female Founder with Kim Parnell (Cofounder @


So you have an idea for a startup. It has a lot of potential. It could change the world. 

But you've also heard of the adage – "An idea is only as good as its execution." 

So therein lies the problem: How do you bring your startup idea to life?

You have no connections. You don't really know how to code. Most of the advice out there is geared towards men, programmers, or male programmers.

What's a girl to do?

Kim Parnell was in that same boat.

A pure science major, she didn’t think business was for her – until she attended a business seminar that changed her life. The same day, she and her co-founder drew up the plans for their first business: A cleaning company.

Fast forward five years, and she's successfully sold that company off.

Kim eventually co-founded another startup. This one was a little different from her first startup –– it was fully technical. is a powerful developer tools platform that has benefited thousands of people.

So how did Kim go from 0 business skills → 1 successful exit → 1 highly technical startup with very little technical skills?

Well... Why don't you ask her?

Kim is graciously hosting 3 more 1-on-1 personal mentorship sessions for charity.

(Update: We had 5 before, and they've all sold out – so Kim graciously added 3 more!)

Kim is a charismatic, overly hyperactive people magnet with a passion for helping entrepreneurs. She is currently the co-founder of Back I/O, a developer tools platform for building apps. In the years prior to joining Back I/O she was involved in many types of businesses, as a founder and an advisor, and has one successful exit under her belt.

She loves helping new business founders navigate the treacherous landscape of entrepreneurship and feels personally fulfilled when they succeed. When not building companies, she can be found lifting weights, abandoning online shopping carts and using herself for weird and random science experiments.
