First Female Founder Conference
Over the last few years, the startup scene has been seeing more and more female founders and CEOs. Y Combinator has put together a first female founder conference hosted by Kat Manalac, Kirsty Nathoo, Carolynn Levy, and Jessica LivingSton. In the conference, the female founder team will cover topics such as stories, advice, struggles and building connection tips for female founders in the startup scene.
The original idea was to make this an event where female YC alumni shared their experiences. But once they started planning the event they thought it would be exciting to invite Julia Hartz and Diane Greene to speak as well, so that there will be speakers who could talk about what happens at even later stages. This is a perfect opportunity to meet up with previous alumni of the y combinator group and share experiences/goals.
The best source of information about startups is the stories of people who’ve started them. Our goal with this conference is to inspire women to start (or hang in there with!) a startup through the insights and experiences of those who have done it already. If you’re a woman interested in learning more about startups, I encourage you to apply.
