New Orleans Female Founder Raises $8 Million to Increase Nonprofit Capacity

New Orleans-based serial entrepreneur Sevetri Wilson is celebrating a major milestone this week. She is the founder and CEO of SaaS platform Resilia, a tech startup that has raised an $8 million series A funding round led by Mucker Capital and Callais Capital Management, along with Cultivation Capital. 

The announcement notes that this is one of the largest series A funding rounds for an enterprise software company led by an African American female founder. 

Wilson and her team will use the funding to support the growth of the business as well as its increased demand. 

Resilia’s mission is to harness the power of generosity, technology, and human connection to make nonprofit leadership available for everyone. The platform is a two-sided market that helps nonprofits increase capacity as well as enables enterprises and grantors that deploy billions to scale impact.

“Resilia has made a tremendous impact by building an innovative platform for both early-stage non-profits and some of the world’s largest foundations, and we look forward to helping them continue to scale,” said Hal Callais, managing partner and CIO at Callais Capital Management. “Their platform is particularly necessary during times of crises to ensure oversight, management, and transparency.”
