Women Founders Network launched in 2013 with a vision to help women achieve their fullest potential. How better to expand women’s sphere of influence than to empower and propel them to launch and scale their own high-growth businesses?
Since 2013, Women Founders Network has been supporting female entrepreneurs with educational seminars, panels and networking events that culminate in the annual Women Founders Fast Pitch Event, and by connecting female entrepreneurs with a network of advisors, mentors and investors.
Women Founders Network (WFN) 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. Since 2013, WFN and its members have awarded and directly invested $1.5 million in women-founded companies, and WFN Fast Pitch alumni have gone on to raise over $200 million in funding. We hope to inspire the next generation of women entrepreneurs and investors through our Due Diligence Analyst program for university women and our Junior VC program for girls in grades 9-12.
