ABOUT OUR GUEST

Said Mia Silicon Valley Innovation Center's Interview Speaker

Said Mia

Said Mia is the Founder of Sweat Equity, an advisory firm focused on helping young companies grow.
After years of investment banking Said wanted to cultivate deeper, earlier-stage relationships with young companies. Sweat Equity began as an advice blog for founders based on his experiences as an investment banker, founder, athlete, and underprivileged minority. The grit, resourcefulness, and acumen he built from these experiences are especially useful to early-stage companies—that’s how Sweat Equity took off.
Said has helped these startups raise capital, make investor presentations, draft marketing documents, oversee their strategic directional decisions, and manage their hiring growth plans.
Sweat Equity was created to help founders wade through the minutiae of “experts” and connect with a genuine, candid person who’s been in their position. All Said's work and recommendations come from his own life experiences and include concepts from his own ventures.
