Now, more than ever before, women are taking on the opportunity to use their gifts, talents, and skills to create and launch their own businesses.

When we start thinking of ourselves as entrepreneurs, founders, doers, and makers — and we reach out to other women who are doing the same — we feel a renewed sense of community and purpose. 

The mission of the Female Founders Network is to provide support, resources, and connections to help female founders accomplish their goals. 🚀 

When we launch our own companies, ventures, products, and services, we benefit from shared knowledge and mutual aid. We learn from each other’s mistakes and celebrate one another’s successes.

Together, we’re growing a digital learning platform for our self-development. We’re also building out marketing tools for your business - take advantage of your searchable directory listing, and the ability to post events and stories, as well as access PDFs and other videos for continued knowledge and growth.

With your membership we’ll also connect you to online trainings, advice in our forums, accountability checking on #firstfridays and an opportunity to showcase your own work through our many social media channels.

🙏🏽We’re confident that with the right guidance and support in navigating the legal, financial, tech, marketing, and ongoing personal development needed to get to the next level in our businesses, we as a network of female founders will raise ourselves up …. and also encourage other women..... to think and act as **entrepreneurs** who contribute to the new global economy.


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 760+ 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.
