We want to help female founders be the best they can be.
WHAT IS FEMALE FOUNDER OFFICE HOURS?
Female Founder Office Hours is a mentoring program designed to accelerate the success of female founders. We offer a combination of tactical advice, mentoring, and supportive community via 1:1 mentoring sessions with female founders and female VCs. Female founders can request 1:1 office hours with our mentors, which can be done via video, phone, in-person or at our regular events in SF, LA, NYC and Boston.
WHY DID YOU CREATE FEMALE FOUNDER OFFICE HOURS?
Our mission is to accelerate the success of female founders. We believe in the power of community and in creating a pay-it-forward chain of mentorship. Our long term goal is to increase the percentage of VC funding to female founders from 15% to 25%. Read more about the numbers here.
HOW CAN I APPLY FOR OFFICE HOURS?
Sign up here. Tell us about you, your company, and what you hope to get out of office hours.
HOW DOES MENTOR MATCHING WORK?
We try to match women based on stage & sector. Every mentor receives a list of possible mentees and selects a few to chat with. If selected, you'll receive an email directly from your mentor to arrange a 45-minute mentoring session. Unfortunately not everyone will be matched for a 1:1 because we have a limited pool of mentors.
