Join us at YC’s Female Founders Conference in New York on June 30

by Adora Cheung5/8/2018

We have been hosting our Female Founders Conference (FFC) for five years, and we’re so excited to be bringing the event to New York City for the first time on June 30, 2018. We were in Seattle earlier this year (check out the full video from February’s FFC Seattle), and we’ll host our final 2018 event this fall in Silicon Valley.

Since 2014, Y Combinator’s Female Founders Conference has been helping women who want to start and run their own startups. We believe creating a platform where successful women can share their stories and advice with founders who are just getting started is one way to bring about even more successful women-led companies.

Attendees will meet YC partners, as well as our alumnae, other female entrepreneurs and investors based in the New York area. The half-day event will feature talks and panels, followed by a reception.

If you’d like to attend in New York, sign up here by June 8, 2018.

FFC NYC Office Hours: We’ll also be hosting one-on-one office hours with female founders in New York on June 29. If you’d like to meet with us for office hours, you can sign up using the same form. Sign up here.

If you have any questions, please reach out to
