“The Expat Women pitch competition was the first group activity I participated in when I moved to Silicon Valley for my first startup Court Buddy. I participated and won 2 pitch competitions and was welcomed with open arms to the community. The women really helped boost my confidence and helped me refine my pitch for when it was time to fundraise. My co-founder and I went on to raise $7M after that experience. The female investors and female founders became my tribe in a city I wasn’t familiar with.” 

– Kristina Jones, Founder & CEO of Guardianlane.com

“When I was brand new in Silicon Valley, The Expat Woman provided me WITH my first platform to pitch my company. The initial validation and the community there changed my life. Three years later, I was named AI entrepreneur of the year by Venture Beat and the biggest tech giants wanted to acquire my startup. It all started one evening with The Expat Women.”

– – Charu Sharma, Silicon Valley-based tech entrepreneur and startup investor.


Over the years many of you have either attended or participated in our Female Founder Pitch Female Funder events or Startup and Investor panels, Demo Tables, and Startup Showcases in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Bangalore, and Toronto and online. We have hosted over 50 entrepreneur events with 400 plus women pitching their diverse businesses to women investors in our network since 2014. Some of the founders went on to participate and win other pitch events, raise funds, get traction and sales, pivot, or exit and sell their companies for a significant amount. We've excited to use all the insights and strategies we've gotten from hosting and working with entrepreneurs and investors and our network to launch our inaugural Start Yours BootCamp.
