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.
In 2018, for the fifth anniversary of FFC, rather than hosting one conference in the Bay Area, we will be hosting 3 events throughout the country: one in Seattle in February, one in New York over the summer and one in the Bay Area in the fall.
The first Y Combinator Female Founders Conference event of the year will be hosted on February 3 at The Riveter in Seattle, a female-founded workspace that supports women founders and leaders.
You’ll meet YC partners, as well as our alumni, other female entrepreneurs and investors based in the Seattle area. The half-day event will feature talks and panels, followed by a reception.
If you’d like to attend in Seattle, sign up here by January 19.
FFC Seattle Office Hours: We’ll also be hosting one-on-one office hours with female founders in Seattle on Feb 2 and 4. If you’d like to meet with us for office hours, you can sign up using the same form. Sign up here.
