Throughout this pandemic, we continued to push through towards our mission to increase the number of womxn founders in tech and support founders online. We expected it to be difficult. What we didn’t expect was how it would truly change our lives.
It became more challenging to meet new people and build relationships. There’s just something about meeting in person, especially when trying to build a business. Bringing motivated women together in one room (after some of us finished our 9-5s) to share our plans about building a startup with other like-minded women, is just not the same as Zoom. It just isn’t.
This pandemic has changed a lot. It’s changed my life and it’s given me time to reflect. I’ve recognized my own desire to drive inclusivity in tech and startups from a different approach.
For those in the community with a drive to build on our mission, it is your time to take the reins. Female CoFounder started as a Google Form on Facebook and turned into a place where founders could come together and learn from each other.
While this will likely be the last email you’ll receive from us, our Slack channel will continue to live on to ensure the community has a way to connect. We will be pausing the newsletter - we encourage all of you to share your resources and advice in Slack. This is a community and we are all here for each other.
I am so grateful to have been surrounded by an amazing group of women on the team and within the community. Each and every one of you have helped make a difference in the world of technology and entrepreneurship.
The team and I will be cheering for you on the sidelines as you continue to build the future of technology, together!
