In exactly one week, we’ll be celebrating the launch of our 10th Batch of Grow F, with a special focus on SaaS startups. We are thrilled to see how the newly designed concept will take off.
As previously announced, we relaunched our investment readiness program after completing nine successful batches of Grow F. We did this after taking into account the insightful feedback we received over the years:
Grow F 2.0 is designed with time-constrained founders in mind. We curated the program content to maximize impact, offering interactive workshops with grab-and-go insights. Our goal is to provide practical knowledge and actionable strategies for immediate application in fundraising efforts.
Batch #10: Kick-off and Focus
In response to the shift towards in-person engagement, Grow F 2.0 includes a special touchpoint—an exclusive event in a major European startup hub. For the upcoming batch, this event is Lead Today. Shape Tomorrow, which is Female Founder’s flagship event, happening in Vienna from October 11–12. This event allows founders to connect and network with venture capital investors and enhance their fundraising journey, providing valuable connections and insights.
To increase the synergies among the participants, each cohort focuses on one specific sector or business model. The cohort focus allows us to adjust the program content in the most precise way and create the strongest investor-founder fit at the in-person event. Batch #10 is all about SaaS—get ready for our 5-week hybrid program to unlock your investment potential!
