Entreprenista Founders Reveal Their Secret to Reinvesting In Their Business

Entreprenista Founders Reveal heir Secret to Reinvesting In Their Business

Every entrepreneur knows the challenges of starting a business from the ground up. There are the long hours, navigating the ins and outs of media attention and, of course, continuing to pivot to stay relevant in an ever-changing society. But no matter the kind of business being launched, one of the biggest challenges to navigate is money.

When they saw an opportunity to earn cash back by using a credit card for business expenses, Entreprenista founders Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer knew they had to jump at the chance to sign up for a Chase Ink Business credit card.

With their business credit cards, Entreprenista has benefited from reinvesting in their business to accelerate their growth. 

Small Beginnings with Big Growth

Entreprenista originally started as a podcast, but has since expanded into a thriving media company, podcast network and Entreprenista League membership community. As Entreprenista continues to grow, their Chase Ink credit card helps support the amazing endeavors the team continues to work on every day. 

As a result, Entreprenista has helped facilitate introductions that have led to millions of dollars in funding, the opportunity for members to be featured on a billboard in Times Square and even media appearances on Good Morning America as well as in other large media outlets. 

According to Stephanie, many members have shared that they have doubled their revenue due to the connections and learning achieved as a part of the community. And helping women find success in their businesses is what Entreprenista is all about. 

“Women face unique challenges in business, and for many, it’s extremely hard to get ahead. Entreprenista is no exception. We experienced first-hand the bias that exists as we began to grow our business,” Stephanie said. “Our goal is to create equal opportunity for every Entreprenista and give her access to the tools, resources and community we have personally used to grow our companies.”

Strategically Sticking with What Works

Stephanie and Courtney first signed up for the Chase Ink Business Cash credit card in 2013 to help with their first business, Socialfly, a social media agency. Seeing just how beneficial the rewards were for their growing business – especially since the Ink Business Cash credit card provides 5% cash back on select categories, they knew they had to get a business credit card when they launched Entreprenista. 

“We always research the best business tools and credit cards, so it was an easy choice to select the Ink Business Cash credit card as it had the most favorable rewards for our type of business. We were also able to give credit cards to the managers and employees on our Socialfly team,” Stephanie said. “When we applied for a new Chase Ink credit card for Entreprenista, we looked through the different Ink credit card options and went with the Ink Business Preferred credit card because of the significant benefits on advertising spend.”

With the Ink Business Preferred credit card, Entreprenista received 3X points on the first $150,000 in certain categories, such as advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines, travel and more. By using the credit card for business expenses, they were able to rack up a substantial amount of points which, in turn, were used to help strengthen and grow Entreprenista. 

Reinvesting Back Into the Business in More Ways Than One

Recently, Entreprenista used cash back from their Ink Business Preferred and Cash credit cards to fly remote team members to their first-ever in-person event in Miami. Since many have not physically met due to remote working arrangements, this opportunity allowed for a deeper team bonding and better planning for the future of Entreprenista, furthering its mission to support female entrepreneurs worldwide. 

“The cash back rewards are amazing and so needed for business owners who want to maximize every dollar spent,” Stephanie said. “Paying for travel can be quite expensive, and being able to have our entire team with us at the event was absolutely incredible.”

To the founders of Entreprenista, reinvestment far exceeds merely a monetary benefit. Boosting employee morale and team building are vital for success and ultimately promote what they preach: uplifting fellow female professionals to be the best they can be. The in-person team dinner in Miami that was funded by Entreprenista’s Ink Business Cash rewards was an essential part of Entreprenista’s development and, overall, a reinvestment well spent. The more they can strategically reinvest into the business side of the company, the more women they can reach and help become successful in their own entrepreneurial endeavors.

“At Entreprenista, we are continuing to grow our Entreprenista League membership community, and are always making meaningful introductions and providing the best business tools and solutions to help our members grow their business,” Stephanie said. “Growth is also hitting closer to home as we are excited to be expanding our media platform – from our social media content, additional podcasts like the launch of our Web3 with MCG podcast – and launching the first Entreprenista 100 Awards.”

Sharing Savvy Secrets with Fellow Entreprenistas

When given the opportunity to partner with the Chase Ink, Stephanie and Courtney were thrilled to share the news with their fellow Entreprenistas. 

“We love sharing our favorite tools and solutions, and the Chase Ink business credit cards have been some of our favorites for many years,” Stephanie said. “There is nothing we love more than helping our members save time when researching the best solutions for their business since we’ve already done it for them.”

Sharing how easy it is to reinvest with rewards credit cards like the Chase Ink Business Preferred credit card is one example of how Entreprenista supports its fellow women founders and leaders. What originally started as Stephanie and Courtney answering daily texts and emails asking to “pick their brain” over coffee, quickly morphed into a popular podcast which has now expanded into so much more. Entreprenista is always evolving with new opportunities on the horizon.
