We connect female entrepreneurs with ideas and people to help our businesses grow.

Fly Female Founders is a community of female entrepreneurs and leaders who believe in the power of women.

We are a diverse group in terms of expertise, experience, age, and racial and ethnic background. We have a growing network of 600+ NYC-based entrepreneurs and leaders from a broad range of industry sectors.

Our mission is to create a constructive and supportive environment for female founders to learn and grow as we advance our businesses together. We provide a platform to share resources, gain inspiration, collaborate, and establish meaningful connections with each other.
