NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Award-Winning Entrepreneur, Angel Investor, and global marketing technology CEO Kim Perell is excited to announce the launch of The Execution Factor Fund. Perell created The Execution Factor Fund to empower entrepreneurs with big ideas to execute their dreams. The fund is launching in conjunction with Kim’s first book, The Execution Factor, The One Skill That Drives Success, released September 10th, 2018 by McGraw Hill. Perell invested the first $1 million into the fund and is donating all royalties from the book.
The Execution Fund is a seed stage fund that will invest in execution-led startups, providing early financing and mentorship to entrepreneurs and connecting them with an extensive network of industry experts. Perell’s goal is to bet on others the same way people have bet on her, paying it forward with mentorship, capital, and resources.
As an entrepreneur and angel investor, Kim understands intimately the challenges entrepreneurs face on a daily basis. Laid off from her first job out of college, Kim began her journey as an entrepreneur from her kitchen table, growing her first company to over $100 million in annual revenue, and selling her last company for $235 million.
Kim attributes her success as an entrepreneur and executive on her ability to execute. Kim believes execution is a skill that can be learned and actively seeks to teach it and share it with others. Kim is an early stage investor in over 70 startups, 14 of which have been acquired by leading companies including Intel, Apple, and Singtel. Execution is the skill she looks for in the people she hires and the entrepreneurs she invests in.
“When I started my first company over 15 years ago, I was broke, unemployed, and trying to convince anyone to lend me money was an uphill battle. Thankfully, my 80-year-old grandmother made a bet on me. My goal is to pay her generosity forward by investing in entrepreneurs who need someone to believe in them. And I believe in you.”
In her book, The Execution Factor, Kim takes the readers through a step-by-step process of mastering execution for success in business and life. This book is a must-read for entrepreneurs, executives, employees, or anyone looking to take their life and career to the next level. Designed to be interactive, the book is like having a success coach by your side, helping to create a step-by-step roadmap to achieve your goals. The Execution Factor is available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.

Welcome to The Execution Factor. Entrepreneur, angel investor, and marketing technology CEO Kim Perell will take you step-by-step through the process of mastering the five traits of execution for success in business and life. Laid off from her first job at an internet startup, Kim was unemployed and broke when she began her journey as an entrepreneur from her kitchen table, becoming a multi-millionaire by the time she was 30, and selling her last company for $235 million in 2014. Kim’s made headlines for her amazing transformative story from a startup entrepreneur to a leading global technology CEO.
