Networking Adventures | Women 2.0 (@women2) @FounderFriday Meetup


I attended my first networking event of the new year this past week which was sponsored by Women 2.0 who held their once a month  Founder Friday consist of aspiring and current entrepreneurs coming to together and network as well as. There was good mix of women in attendance including some men who were founders of various start-ups. Not everyone there was from a start up though which I think provided a good a balance.

An interesting fact about the Founder Friday event is that one was also being held in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Since this is where Women 2.0 started. So simultaneously there were events being held where women were coming together to share and connect. They are trying to expand the event to other cities which I think will be well received.

Hosting this months meet up were

Kelly Hoey, Investor and Founder of Women Innovate Mobile

CJ Kettler, CEO and Co-Founder of Genius Crowds

“Build your network, so you can pursue your dreams.” -Kelly Hoey

“We can be our own tribe of knowledge if we help each other.”- CJ Kettler

Hearing these two ladies speak revved up those in attendance. Hearing about how others went about their entrepreneurial journey is always inspiring. The ladies also offered tips on what they’ve learned.

I really enjoyed my time at Founder Friday because it was great to go to an event where everyone was there to talk and share ideas and really connect. The energy in the room was very positive. So if you get the chance next month I would recommend attending a Founder Friday meetup.



Happy Flying,
