What we're about

🎉 F.I.E.S.T.A. 🎉 Founders, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Startups, Techies, and Austin Newcomers aims to connect, support, and inspire early-stage startup founders and those new to Austin, TX. While all entrepreneurs (and aspiring entrepreneurs) are welcome to join, this group will focus on helping early-stage startup founders. If you are new to Austin or a local Austinite, simply looking to Network or make new friends, you are in the right place.

We meet on the third Tuesday from 5:30-8:00 PM monthly at the Capital Factory located in Omni Hotel on the bottom floor. Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey, come prepared to share your elevator pitch, any wins or needs, plus be willing to help others.

We look forward to meeting you and hearing about your founder's journey!

Women Founders & Friends Gathering

Bond Collective - East Austin

If you are female-identifying, join us. We gather to engage, support & empower one another.

We exist to unite professional women, fuel passions, and cultivate business relationships organically by facilitating meaningful conversations and connections. We've created a safe place to gather, ask questions, share ideas, open our networks, and support each other.
Join us as we champion one another while navigating our personal and professional lives and continuing to grow.

Below are a few comments from past attendees:

  • "This was one of the most valuable and meaningful female networking events I've ever attended. "
  • "Such an inspiring and impressive group. SO valuable, and can't wait for the next one!"
  • "Truly one of my favorite events, and I made such meaningful connections."

Please only RSVP if you know you can attend, as space is limited. Respectfully cancel ASAP if you realize you cannot participate so those on the waitlist can join.

FIESTA is actively seeking sponsors for 2023. If you're passionate about entrepreneurship and desire to grow your brand recognition, this is the perfect opportunity to get involved. There are limited spaces left for anchor sponsors. Contact us here today.
