More About Sweta

Sweta is a self-taught entrepreneur with a lust for learning and serving. She’s built 2 companies ($1 million total sales) — 1 failed, 1 pivoted, 2 and partnerships. She advises some of the fastest growing companies on the planet, and has saved nearly 150 that were struggling. She shares her practical experiences at speaking events around the world. Oh, and she loves intense sports. At 21, Sweta founded her first marketing agency in San Diego, managing campaigns for national brands like Islands Burgers and Hershey’s, while doing charitable work with young domestic violence victims. Things were rosy for a while, but the agency grew too quickly to 11 people. Without the systems to support the scale, Sweta’s startup started to falter.

She closed the agency, moved to Silicon Valley and became a trusted marketing confidant for overwhelmed CEOs. Today, Sweta has advised over 200 early-stage startups and high-growth companies, saving nearly 150 from imminent collapse, and increased their average recurring monthly revenue by 20%. She’s generated more leads in a single week than a company generated for an entire year. She’s seen how real businesses fail or thrive. The lesson? Sweta applies what she’s learned to stuff that matters — making your startup succeed.

Sweta’s mistakes, do you relate?

Hiring too quickly for jobs that didn’t need filling.

Delegating too quickly without understanding what was needed for success.

Trusting too quickly without proper diligence

Getting upset with her business failure rather than using the experience to fuel a greater opportunity.
