The Retreat by FFC
Palm Springs, CA ● Feb 29 - Mar 1, 2024
The FFC (Female Founder Circles) Retreat is an invitation-only one and a half-day gathering of female founders, inspired by successful female founders and leaders.
Being a founder is tough. Being a female founder poses its own set of challenges. Founders need support. Who better to give support to than fellow founders? Join us as a group of female founders, from seed to unicorn, share experiences, build community, and support each other.
Request an invite or nominate by December 15 for second round of invites.
This is designed to be a retreat, rather than a conference, with the aim of crafting a safe space that fosters open conversations and learning from other female founders.
Learn from other successful female founders and leaders on how they scaled their businesses, fundraised, and overcame personal and professional challenges.
