Although our leadership are all women, we work with a variety of male freelancers and men make up roughly 15% of our community, including paying members (who join both IRL and virtual events, including mentorship programs), and financial supporters. Two dudes who deserve honorable mentions include Or Perelman of ChromaWay and Benn Eifert of QVR Advisors. Our network itself is also a resource for every affiliated investor’s portfolio companies. We also work with a wide range of sponsors, from Sphinx and Chaincode Labs to Visa and Backend Capital. We welcome supporters of all backgrounds and persuasions!
We are building a professional network that empowers young women to become leaders and innovators in traditionally male-dominated fields. We accomplish this by helping young women meet like-minded mentors and colleagues, both online and at in-person events, plus highlighting their successes with our media projects.
