Frequently Asked Questions
What is your criteria for choosing speakers?
We are looking for speakers with at least 3 previously published interviews or speaking engagements, including VC investors who are generally at the Senior Associate level and above, and tech startup founders and operators with leadership experience in a wide range of industries. We make our acceptance decisions based on speakers’ industry expertise as well as demonstrated speaking and media experience. We also consider the overall representation of sectors, industries, and various demographics (e.g. race/ethnicity, LGBTQIA+, disability).
How often will I be contacted?
This database is designed to be a resource for journalists, editors and event organizers to introduce them to female or non-binary founders, funders, and operators in tech and venture. Journalists and event organizers will reach out to participants directly as they are working on relevant stories and creating event programs. Although we cannot guarantee speaking or media requests, if you begin to receive a high volume of requests and wish to make any changes to your submission, please let us know via this form or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm an entrepreneur. Why wasn't my application accepted?
The speakers bureau is designed for female/non-binary founders, funders, or operators in tech and venture capital who also have published speaking and media experience. We received a number of amazing submissions from solopreneur consultants, founders of professional services firms, and experienced professionals who are experts in their respective fields.
For now, we are defining founders and operators as founders and operators of venture-backed tech or tech-enabled startups. That said, in the future, we may feature other types of entrepreneurs, particularly consultants whose expertise is highly relevant to tech startup founders and venture capital investors.
