WE BELIEVE IN THE FEMALE FOUNDER

Women Founders Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education on entrepreneurship and investing to women and girls.

Through our annual Fast Pitch competition, we provide access to capital, visibility, and mentoring for female founders. We hope to inspire the next generation of women entrepreneurs and capital allocators through our Fellows program for college women and our Junior Judge program for young women in grades 9-12.

 
We are a community of highly motivated women who come together to be inspired, to celebrate, and to invest in the future. We invite you to join us!
