Dr. Molly O’Shea, a Michigan-based entrepreneur, heads multiple successful ventures, notably the Birmingham Pediatrics Wellness Center. Departing from a group practice, she embarked on a mission to revolutionize healthcare for young patients. However, the hurdle she faced was finding a compatible bank to collaborate with. Most banks she approached showed little interest in funding a new business lacking historical financial information.
Yet, her perseverance paid off as she and her co-founder, Cinzia Filipovski, were able to connect with a supportive and trustworthy banker who shared their vision and believed in the venture’s potential. For Dr. O’Shea, having a reliable banker who placed trust in her was crucial for launching and expanding her business.
