We’re excited to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration this year — the world’s largest gathering of women technologists. We’ll be teaming up with YC alum Elpha (a community where women in tech can talk candidly online) and hosting office hours on October 3 in Orlando.

If you’re interested in starting a startup or want feedback on a project you’re building, we’d love to meet you. You’ll meet me, YC Visiting Partner (and Abie Award winner) Holly Liu, and Elpha founder Cadran Cowansage for a personal chat — and you’re welcome to bring a friend or cofounder with you. Sign up here.

Make sure to check out these Grace Hopper panels featuring YC alum:
