RISE: The Female Founders Squad's 6 Week Pre-Accelerator Program
WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
Our program moves away from the traditional one-size-fits-all Accelerator model. We understand that a female founders entrepreneurial journey is much different from that of her male counterparts.
Why? Because globally in 2021 89% of VC funding went to male founders, and only 2% of female founders received funding.
That data shows that we are not on a level playing field here and that fundamentally women are having to create their startups within a system that is flawed.
Therefore our approach reflects this and is tailored specifically to the journey of a female-led startup.

Mother of two awesome humans, founder, mentor and seeker of equality...I founded my startup to support and elevate founders like you to create and grow successful startups.
I believe that every woman should have access to the support, knowledge and funding she needs to innovate and participate in helping to shape our culture, our society and our collective economies.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE..
Founding a startup is exciting and exhilarating but with so much to learn, it can also be overwhelming and lonely. There are so many courses, accelerators and programs out there that put founders under so much pressure to do things their way, within their timescales and that it can have an negative impact on you and your business.
We don't do that at FFS, we encourage founders to go at their pace and provide the support, mentoring and coaching you need to flourish.
