THE VIOLET SOCIETY FELLOWSHIP

TURBOCHARGE YOUR CAREER GROWTH

Forge extremely strong connections with a peer group who wants to achieve great things by spending dozens of hours soaking up their knowledge and advice.

 

Together we can go higher than any of us alone.

MENTORSHIP

Learn from amazing leaders who are only a few steps ahead of you and remember what it was like to be in your place.

 

Meet them in an intimate environment to build real, lasting connections. 

GROWTH

Move past personal and professional challenges with weekly Mastermind Sessions.

 

Learn new skills, get clued in to valuable resources, and get introductions to new connections from your new peer mentors.

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. 

FAQ

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.

TESTIMONIAL

"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
