We believe creating a platform where successful women can share their stories and advice with founders who are just getting started is one way to bring about even more successful women-led companies.

In 2018, rather than hosting one conference in the Bay Area, we’re hosting 3 events: one in Seattle in February, one in New York over the summer and one in the Bay Area in the fall.

The first Y Combinator Female Founders Conference event of the year will be hosted on February 3 at The Riveter in Seattle, a female-founded workspace that supports women founders and leaders.

Here’s the live stream and schedule.
