I’m a guy. Can I go to a Women 2.0 Founder Friday?
Founder Fridays are geared toward current and aspiring female founders, but they are open to both men and women, as are all Women 2.0 events. The majority of the attendees are women (as usually seen on the Attendee List on Eventbrite) but a few men attend, usually as the female entrepreneur’s co-founder, or the +1 of a current female founder.
Founder Friday is sold out. Can I still go?
If Eventbrite shows that Founder Friday is sold out, sign up for a “Waitlist” ticket. If any attendees cancel, we will let you know of the open spot in the order that you signed up for the “Waitlist” ticket.
It’s the day of and I’m running late. Is there anyone I can call to let them know?
Don’t worry, come as soon as you can. The event is structured such that attendees can walk around and mingle as they eat, so don’t worry that they’re waiting on you to serve dinner or start the event.
Based on the Attendee List on Eventbrite, it seems like the other attendees are much further along in developing their companies or have years of industry experience, while I’m much earlier in my career (current university student or recent grad). Can I still go to the Founder Friday?
The event is aimed at current as well as aspiring founders of companies. There are indeed quite a few founders, but those earlier in their careers do attend, including current students or recent grads. Also, realize that some attendees only list on Eventbrite the company they are founding or co-founding, so the list doesn’t show the other job(s) that they may or may not hold.
I don’t see a Founder Friday in my city. How do I get a Founder Friday in my city?
We are always looking to expand to new cities! Founder Friday events are run by the Women 2.0 core team and dedicated groups of volunteers in each city. If you are interested in having a Founder Friday in your city, contact email@example.com.
