YCombinator’s Female Founders Conference

YCombinator--now with an X! The famous accelerator invites the Female Entrepreneurs community to its second Female Founders Conference for sharing stories and practical advice for building a company.

Are you interested in starting a startup? We’d love to have you at Y Combinator’s second Female Founders Conference, where women we’ve funded, along with distinguished guests, will share their stories and practical advice for building a company. Learn how they got started, what went wrong, what surprised them, and what happened as their companies grew.

Female founders/entrepreneurs speaking include:
Adora Cheung – Founder, Homejoy
Kimberly Bryant – Founder, Black Girls Code
Grace Garey – Founder, Watsi
Jessica Livingston – Founder, Y Combinator
Ruchi Sanghvi – Founder, Cove (acquired by Dropbox), first female engineer at Facebook
Olga Vidisheva – Founder, Shoptiques
Tracy Young – Founder, PlanGrid

Our goal is to bring current and future female founders together. You’re welcome to apply no matter what stage your company is at. Apply here by January 12th.
