Fylí (pronounced FEE-LEE) which stands for “tribe” is a female mastermind membership community focused on educational masterclasses, accountability, peer-to-peer mentorship, leadership advancement and funding opportunities for early stage female founders. This business was started by Co-Founders Jaclynn Brennan & Yanyi Li out of a personal need to help create a network of resources, education, and 360 lifestyle support for female entrepreneurs. Fyli has successfully launched 4 cohorts, which are small curated groups that require an application and interview process, and have a 92% retention rate with annual renewal. Fyli is highly focused on supporting diverse BIPOC Founders, amplifying their voices, and providing opportunities for advancement.
