YFE is actively looking for organizations that produce in person events catered to women and/or young entrepreneurs. Why? YFE produces our own online events, but is leaving the business of in person events to the pros for right now (see manifesto). While being able to connect with like minded individuals who are in similar life stages from around the world is incredibly beneficial, we believe meeting in person solidifies relationships.
YFE is forming partnerships with organizations that put on in person events for women and young entrepreneurs across the United States.
What organizations do you look to for education, networking, or just for a good time?
One example here in the Seattle area is in Power Chicks. YFE was given permission to invite our community to one of their in person Seattle events where we were able to meet one another, grab some business tips, and mingle with the other women in the room at the same time.
The cities YFE is starting with, based off of community participation in YFE are:
Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Dallas, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, and Philadelphia.
Email email@example.com or comment on this post if you are an organization leader, member, event attendee, or fan to share. Be sure to include information on the organization and upcoming events. Thank you!
We’re heading into the last quarter of 2011 and before we get there, let’s take some time to celebrate our accomplishments as a community of young, female entrepreneurs. YFE is putting together highlights of reasons to celebrate– big and small.
Did you… Close a big sale in the past month? Open up shop? Tell your family about your entrepreneurial intentions? Expand by hiring?
By commenting you give YFE permission to share your accomplishments with the larger community in the next few weeks. Cheers to YFEs who are making things happen!
PS. Video above is for your little celebration dance while you comment ;)
What are the biggest issues that young, female entrepreneurs face today in starting and growing businesses?
(Ex. health care, funding, economy, etc.) Share the issue(s) and how it has personally affected you.
What are the advantages to being a young woman in starting and growing a business today?
(Ex. a lot of buzz right now around young entrepreneurs being innovative, so people are excited to work with you; you are more in with the whole web 2.0 deal, you don’t have a mortgage to worry about, you aren’t putting kids through college in the next five years, etc.) Share the advantage(s) and how it has personally benefited you.
Quick lesson in SEO… when commenting, if you would rather people not find your comment when searching for your whole name use your first name, or a nickname. However, still include a link to your website in case YFE wants to follow up with you… or not if you want to remain anonymous :)
Thank you in advance! You are also welcome to email your responses to YFE at firstname.lastname@example.org. Responses will be used in future posts, with other media publications, and in deciding how YFE structures the way in which we offer you support.
