Mollie Breen and Tiffany Carvalho, contestants on season one of Girl Starter, joined our hosts David Grasso from GenFKD and Robin White-Goode from Black Enterprise. On Bold Business, they discussed the reality competition show that documents eight girls ages 18-24 competing for a seed-round funding prize of $100,000.
Tiffany is a 22-year-old that developed an app that networks and matches artists with the right people to collaborate and find better work opportunities. Mollie is a 24-year-old whose startup helps people with their mental health by practicing self-care. Mollie’s startup also aims to improve lives and maintain the healthy habits of those who are already practicing self-care.
Our guests told David and Robin that all the young women on the show bonded through the crazy and intense experience they shared on Girl Starter. Tiffany said she now has a network of women that she can go to if she has questions about her business and anything else going on in her life.
“A lot of women tend to compete with each other, knock each other down, and it was really cool that we got to support each other,” Tiffany said.
Mollie said she’s still working on business development and emphasizes the importance of continuing the journey and working hard.
“Even if we’re not in front of the cameras, it does not take away from the fact that this is something that we’re all still really passionate about and something that we’re all still working towards,” Mollie said.
Tiffany encourages those wanting to start their own business to start now rather than later: “Take the plunge, take the risk and go for it.” The competition airs every Friday on TLC at 7pm.
