Career mentorship & community for female & non-binary startup founders ✨
THE VIOLET SOCIETY FELLOWSHIP
TURBOCHARGE YOUR CAREER GROWTH
WHO'S IT FOR
Early-stage and aspiring startup founders; you may have an idea, a prototype, or a product, but are looking for some guidance to take it to the next level.
WHEN WE MEET
Monday evenings in San Francisco
WHAT WE'LL DO
Masterminds - Structured peer mentorship groups where you help your fellow members overcome challenges while receiving targeted advice for moving past your own.
Mentorship - Fireside chats with successful Founders who have raised Venture Capital, exited their company, or bootstrapped to profitability.
Sisterhood - Build strong friendships and professional relationships through social events and other activities; spend over 30 hours alongside your cohort members.
HOW MUCH DOES THE FELLOWSHIP COST?
The program membership fee is $500. This fee can be paid up-front or in interest-free payments to fit your needs.
WHAT DO I GET FOR THE FEE?
We provide meals during the initial all-day kickoff, beautiful and useful swag, over 30 hours of hands-on mentorship help, introductions to talented mentors, and more. We promise you can't find a program that's as hands-on at ours at a comparable cost!
ARE ANY SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?
There are a limited number of need-based scholarships available for accepted members.
I'M NOT SURE IF I OR MY STARTUP ARE RIGHT FOR THIS, HELP?
We've had people join with just an idea, and others join with a post-launch product and paying customers. We've had members join building venture-backable software companies, and others join with physical objects like an ergonomic workstation and matcha concentrate. Some members are running their startup part-time and others full time. If you're still not sure, email us.
"I highly recommend Violet Society for both founders and especially aspiring co-founders. I joined Violet as a budding entrepreneur with a lot of passion and energy for building a meaningful passion project, and Violet helped me gain a perspective and a multitude of resources that helped me propel the foundations for my next organization. I am so thankful for the incredible community of intelligent and ambitious women who are passionate about building great companies and projects. On top of the great people I met, one of my favorite parts about Violet was hearing from sooo many inspiring speakers who spoke candidly about being a female founder. " - Mary Serafin
