Rachel Hersh is on a mission to shift how we talk about accessing growth capital. With 24 years of financing experience, she is one of few industry professionals using creativity to solve the issue of cash flow.
Rachel’s unique storytelling approach uses real life examples to simplify invoice financing – a little known form of financing that allows companies to grow and scale rapidly without giving up or diluting equity. Her dynamic personality captivates her audience and leaves them with actionable steps for success.
Rachel’s warm and approachable style has led to speaking engagements with organizations across the country including LaunchPad Long Island, FoodTech FastTrack, New York New Jersey Minority Supplier Development, and various law firm and accounting firms for their continuing professional education credits. She has taught classes at Daymond John Academy, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), LaGuardia Community College and others. Her work has been featured in FORBES, CRAIN’S, SECURED FINANCE NETWORK, and RAINE MAGAZINE. She has been interviewed on the BBC, 77WABC, WOLB1010am, THISISIT TV, FOX BALTIMORE, and more.
Rachel has become the go-to speaker and mentor for Consumer Packaged Good (CPG) associations. She has participated in webinars for members of Dandi Day – A Conscious Beauty Community, and Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) and will be speaking at Naturally Network in Spring 2023.
Rachel makes it her business to support the growth and development of women-owned businesses and share the benefits of invoice financing with anyone who hasn’t heard about it.
