  • This location is shown only to members

If you think that being at an early stage startup employee means that you just work 100 hour weeks, then you're in for a surprise!

Having been an early employee of a startup (, and having started my own startups (BizeeBee and Femgineer) I've gotten a real sense of the pros and cons of being at an early stage startup. 

In this forum you'll learn:

• How to evaluate salary, equity, and lifestyle
• How to mitigate risk
• How being an early employee teaches you how to setup a company, build a product, and can catapult your career!

So come to our forum and learn why you might just be the right employee for an early stage startup!


6-7pm Networking and a light dinner 

7-8pm Presentation 

8-9pm Break out session to help you practice the strategies with peers

    I really wanted to attend this meetup but I could not. I saw the slides on the Femgineer website. They were very informative but I was wondering if there is any video recording that you can make available?
    Thank you.

      After 6 there maybe, or it will most likely be reduced price at the meters

    First of all, thank you so much for arranging this! Secondly, will there be video and/or slides posted of the event?

      You are very welcome! We always post the slides after the event, you can find them here:­. Video production comes out of our budget, and since it's already a free event we'll try to do our best to make one available.
