Female Founder Event at H\FC

In early August 2023, Home From College, in conjunction with Brydge Club, hosted a Female Founder & Investor Panel as an opportunity to network with other women in startups and venture capital around Los Angeles.

Between the 5 panelists’ experiences building and investing in businesses, these women shared their knowledge in navigating venture funding as a start-up founder, and demanding respect and opportunity to thrive in male driven rooms.This room of ambitious women turning visions to reality in fields dominated by men, spoke to empower each other through sharing industry knowledge not often taught or talked about.

At the end of this event, over 70 women left more motivated than ever to put each other in spaces of support and faith in their capabilities. With Home From College’s brand ethos centered around uplifting students for wild success and being their champion against the hard-to-navigate workforce, we strive to do the same for all communities surrounding us as well. 

We’d like to give a major thank you to Fenwick & West for sponsoring this event, making it possible to gather dozens of leaders and innovators together!

Panel speakers included:

Julia Haber, Co-Founder/CEO of Home From College

Trica Biggio, Co-Founder/CEO of Invisible Universe

Julie Wroblewski, Co-Founder/Managing Partner of Magnify Ventures

Madeline Darcy, Founder/Managing Partner of Kaya Ventures

Sarah Chambless, Partner at Fenwick & West

Moderated by @Ruffin Mitchener, Creator of Brydge Club
