Our mission is to provide honest support, resources, and connections to help female founders accomplish their goals.

Women are shaping the world's future.

  • Women develop new products and services.

  • Women create jobs.

  • Women make a positive social and economic difference.

  • Women entrepreneurs have the ability and responsibility to rise to the task of creating a new world.

  • Female Founders Lead the Way is a network of female founders dedicated to helping our members achieve their goals.

The network started as a group of women social entrepreneurs who met during the YC Female Founders Conference in San Francisco in 2015.




The small group moved to a LinkedIn group in 2016, and is currently at 700+ members. Group members are able to find one another, use search, and post jobs, discussions, and events to the shared discussion board inside LinkedIn.




In 2018 we moved to our own platform to facilitate cross-promotion, sharing, and knowledge of female founders. Membership is open to anyone who is a female founder or works with female founders.


Join this network as a paid member, and gain access to all the resources, events, directory listings, and ability to post to our social media channels: Annual Membership. Or, submit your business as a free listing valid for one year. Companies, join us as an advertiser or sponsor.
