March 13, Santa Monica -- *LA Female Founder Office Hours*
LA Female Founder Office Hours. This is the first in a series of Female
Founder Office Hours, staffed by female partners from a collective of VC
firms. For our first event, we'll be focused on helping seed-stage female
founders with their pitches. We'll be offering forty 1:1 office hour slots
with 10 female VC partners from Benchmark, Canaan, Cowboy, Forerunner,
Freestyle, Lux, Sequoia, and Reach. There will also be a talk by two former
female founders-turned-VCs on how to fundraise, based on their experiences
from both sides of the table. The event is also a great opportunity for
female founders to meet, mingle, and share advice with one another. Our
goal is for every female founder to walk away with a bit of advice from
some female investors and a few new female founder friends that they can
count on. We hope to use this to kickstart a virtuous cycle and community
of women helping women.. See
