What is City Meetup?
City Meetup is Women 2.0’s signature networking event held on first Thursdays of every month. The event is hosted in over 20 cities globally with the mission to connect, inspire and advance authentic relationships in the tech ecosystem.
Formerly known as Founder Fridays, we are an inclusive community, inviting not only to founders, but also executives, investors, engineers and creative innovators in the tech ecosystem. While as our events are predominantly women focused, most Women 2.0 City Meetup attract a mix of both men and women.

What happens at City Meetup?
We start off with some open networking, then have a speaker share personal insights, lessons and stories we can all learn from for 10 minutes. The speaker is usually a technology company founder, executive or investor. Following this we move into more open networking.
Why should I come?
Further yourself! Make new connections with like minded individuals, learn something new, be inspired. Collaborate, join, start or fund something new, great things happen when you put smart achieving people in one room!
