FFFB summit is dedicated to empowering, connecting, and celebrating women in the entrepreneurship and investing ecosystems across Berkeley and beyond.

Female Founders and Funders Summit at Berkeley is a flagship event of Female Founders and Funders of Berkeley Club.

Funding is still inequitable in the VC ecosystem and only 1.8% of all VC funding went to all female-founded companies in 2023.

The persistent funding gap for female entrepreneurs drastically undermines the startup ecosystem’s disruptiveness and poses a significant barrier to realizing the Sustainable Development Goals, threatening our collective future.


Despite the plethora of female-focused startup/VC events out there, we realized that at Berkeley and beyond:

(a) we hadn’t encountered any that were actively teaching female founders and funders actionable skills that they could use to overcome the biases and narrow the gender gap and

(b) there was no community that catered to both female founders and funders, even though both of these ecosystems are two sides of the same coin.

We decided to fill that gap and bring them together through the Female Founders and Funders at Berkeley Club.

The comprehensive agenda for the day at the FFFB Summit encompasses keynote speeches, panel discussions with leaders in the venture capital sector known for their support of women, presentations by female startup founders, and targeted workshops designed to explore funding avenues for companies founded by women. Additionally, the program aims to bolster the success of women as both entrepreneurs and investors. The Summit also presents unique networking opportunities, enabling participants to connect with like-minded professionals, mentors, and potential collaborators in the field.
