We know that as an entrepreneur you start out small. You begin your company with a small team, maybe even no team, only you. But you can’t do it all on your own. You need to be able to work on your company and not only in it. Focus is key! But we all know that focus is hard to keep when there’s so much going on.

That’s why TheNextWomen is starting a new program for her members: The Founder Focus Group. In peer to peer groups we connect our members together for monthly meetups where you will get feedback and advice on your current challenges. Your own support tribe. By bringing your struggles and challenges to a group of likeminded female founders you will be able to make a next step. And get that much needed support.

Interested? We will start the first groups in June (this will be a beta); groups are matched quarterly.
Why a Founder’s Focus Group?
Entrepreneurship is really great, but it can also be a little lonely. Who knows better what you’re going through than another founder? Learn from your peers and exhange experiences.

What is it?
A group is made up out of 5-7 female entrepreneurs that meet on a monthly basis (virtual or offline) to discuss their obstacles and their goals.

How does it work?
A group can meet in person or virtual. TheNextWomen helps you with facilitating the first group session.
We will make sure to check in after every meetup to see if our network can help you in anyway.
Four times a year an expert can join the meetup for some additional advice.

Why join?
As an entrepreneur it’s important to set goals, but when no one is holding you accountable, but yourself, you might end up working only in your company and not on your company.

Would it be something for me?
Are you ready to grow your business? Are you a founder, CEO or president of an independently owned company? Yes? What are you waiting for! Join now!

15:00 Welcome
15:15 Start session | Goals
15:30 30 minutes per founder
17:45 Closing | Goals for next time

Both virtual & offline
Why monthly sessions?
A lot can, or cannot happen in a month.
By meeting your group on a monthly
basis, it helps you keep your focus
and build that amazing business.

TheNextWomen aims to promote an inclusive eco-system of entrepreneurs and enterprises. In this eco-system startups, investors, entrepreneurs and corporate businesses bear the responsibility towards one another to stimulate the economy, by advising and investing in each other. Female leaders are under-represented in this eco-system, causing the Dutch economy to miss out on important growth opportunities. Only 8% of all high-growth entrepreneurs are women; only 4% of all investors are women; and only 5% of female startups successfully gain access to venture capital. What’s more, women entrepreneurs have a harder time breaking through the 1 million euros turnover barrier. By giving visibility to today’s most important and innovative female leaders, and to leading female tech and high-growth startups, TheNextWomen stimulates the entire eco-system, while showing both male and female investors that there is healthy deal flow. TheNextWomen stimulate and help each other.
