Could you be one of our Founders?

We’ve developed a rigorous process to recruit a talented and ambitious pool of female founders who lead growth-oriented companies. 

Following selection, they focus on the most important ‘Asks’ they have for our Connectors, actions that would greatly improve their probability of entrepreneurial success. They are coached to present to a targeted group of Connectors, who can then suggest which of their contacts could be genuinely useful. All introduction are carefully tracked. 

We also make sure that all of our founders form connections with each other to build long-term strategic networks within our community and to return to Portfolio Events to both report on their business progress, and introduce new Asks. 

Our numerous Alumnae who have successfully exited their business or gone on to other careers, often become powerful role models to everyone in the Heads Over Heels community, as well as influential Connectors in their own right.
