Founder Focus Club


Want to go fast? Go alone. Want to go far? Go together!

Founder Focus Club

The Focus Club is a curated community for female entrepreneurs, in which you can find support for your entrepreneurial journey.

After you sign up, we match you together with a maximum of 4 other female founders with a business in the same stage as you.
With your club you discuss everything relevant to the growth of your company; you share advice on how to attract customers, where to find a good IP lawyer, how to reach out to investors, etc. But you can also rely on each other to understand what you’re going through, to exchange experiences and to share frustrations.

Format Founder Focus Club

We’re kicking off new groups every month.
You’re placed in your club the first month after registering.
Every focus club consists of a maximum of 5 founders.
For every kick-off we have room for 10 founders; 2 new groups per month.
You need to be a paying member of The Next Women Network to be able to join a Focus Club.

Club Sessions – included in PREMIUM & PLATINUM membership or €199,- excl. VAT
6 sessions a year
Every session each member has 30 minutes to discuss the following:
1. What are your successes from last month?
2. What are your current struggles?
3. What are the next steps you’re going to take?

Club Sessions are built on trust, integrity and sharing. The club is most successful when you and your fellow founders will share sensitive information. It is important to understand that everything shared is in confidence. What is said within the club remains within the club!

You’re not alone

The Next Women has close partnerships with other entrepreneurial communities, financial institutions and corporate partners.
If you’re in need of any assistance you can always ask for support.
We happily invite experts to join a Club Session or connect you directly to one of our many mentors.
