Where women in tech lead, shape and fund the future.
Hi, welcome to Femstree't’s life online this week! I’m Sarah and this is the 228th edition of Femstreet sent from NYC. The most clicked post from last week’s curation was How to move faster as a founder. If you like the content in this newsletter, please like it above and share it with friends.
I’m excited to announce that we launched the Femstreet Talent Collective, a reverse job board where top companies apply to you.
This is an application-only community for talented female leaders with 3+ years of experience (especially in community, marketing, product & design) exploring their next big play. Members of our Talent Collective get warm intros to top companies personally screened by us, with the ability to stay anonymous or public. It’s free, no obligations. Our goal is to make the Femstreet Talent Collective the highest signal-to-noise hiring resource for all women in tech.
Looking for a new gig, either actively or passively? Apply to be part of our Talent Collective.

How to onboard yourself when starting a new job
