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, reaching 650+ 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 a separate 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.
