I don't think there is money on the table for my review, should I still ask? & More! MEET THE SPEAKER: NastyGap is a platform geared towards women that helps people navigate salary negotiations with confidence and success. Through a 3 hour workshop, participants learn the step by step framework I have used to double my own income twice in the past 4 years. From mindset, to research, to asking and handling counter-offers, the workshop empowers participants to walk away with the confidence to gracefully navigate a promotion, a raise, or a new job offer. Read testimonials here. NastyGap was founded by Raffi Sapire, an entrepreneur and negoSHEator. She currently leads operations at a blockchain startup while helping women negotiate during lunch, weekends and evenings. Most recently, she was a venture capitalist at Blue Seed, a seed fund in Brooklyn where she launched a program to help female vc's navigate path to partner, term-sheet roundtables with female founders of seed and series A companies, and built ventureinclusion.com in partnership with Foundry. She launched NastyGap after her roommate taught her how to navigate her 3rd job, prior to which she had never negotiated successfully. She realized that negotiation resources are outdated - taught by 60 year old white bald guys telling you how to "get to yes" for a mere $10,000 for an online course. She launched the platform to help 10,000 women ask for $5,000 more each by 2020, closing the wage gap by $50,000,000. Please join her on this journey!
