Natalie on her own
After getting two business degrees she join the corporate world and and spend 8 years at it mastering marketing and business development skills.
In 2008 she quit the corporate world and head to Vancouver, Canada where she co-found a technology start up FundRazr, which is now the number one fundraising application on Facebook. She also started a blog to chart her journey as an entrepreneur and to learn from other amazing women entrepreneurs. As she explain; “I knew deep down that I had a message to share with the world, and many lessons to teach to inspire others to go after their own dreams and start building a business and life they love.”
In April 2010 and She decided to take what had become an overriding passion in her life, and turn it into a business. In December of that year, She rebranded the blog to The Suitcase Entrepreneur to better fit the niche she was crafting, now for both men and women wanting freedom in business and adventure in life.
