About Access

The Female Founders Alliance Access Tour is designed to help founders move their business forward by fostering meaningful connections with the people and organizations that are most difficult to access for underrepresented founders. Through a combination of panels, 1:1 VIP coaching, founder AMAs, and facilitated networking, our guest speakers and coaches will meaningfully support founders in their area of business expertise. Founders will leave with new connections and newfound wisdom in an area of their business.

Event format

*Topical panels with influential leaders in the startup & VC communities
*AMAs with founders who have raised before, organized by type of financing
*Substantial time for relationship-building
*1:1 meetings with investors and other influentials
