Starting a company is not an easy thing and even less taking it to a valuation of one billion dollars. Now imagine that you are a migrant entrepreneur and that you must face great challenges to raise capital in the United States.

Silvina Moschini

That is the story of Silvina Moschini , the founder of TransparentBusiness , a SaaS to manage and monitor the remote workforce that last October reached the category of unicorn, as well as the SheWorks! Networking community.

"My company is a pink unicorn because it is a company founded and led by a woman and because pink is my favorite color. I wanted to show that unicorns, the billion dollar businesses, have no gender," Silvina told us when opening the 2021 season of Entrepreneur Masters , the section of Entrepreneur in Spanish where we talk with leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world.
