It’s reported that fewer than 5% of all VC-funded firms have women on their executive teams, and only 2.7% had a female CEO

That’s a problem. 

Google Developers Launchpad wants to bring the leading female founders and leaders together to help expand the community and build their startups more successfully.  

Join the second-annual Launchpad Female Founders Summit in San Francisco from November 16 - 17, 2017 for in-depth talks, fireside chats, and startup success training from the best of Google and Silicon Valley.    

This invite-only event is free but limited to the first 200 registrants. Reserve your spot today!


Why attend?

Grow Your Startup: We’ve created an agenda full of startup training and best practices 

Build Your Network: Get to know other inspiring female founders

Get Inspired: Hear intimate success stories and advice from inspiring leaders
