On Tuesday, March 8th, 2022 Fyli mastermind kicked off it’s global partnership with Soho House by hosting an International Women’s Day Celebration at Soho House Austin. It was a day of powerful conversations, thoughtful networking, and genuine support within our shared communities. The central theme of our IWD 2022 celebration was Together We Rise: Renew, Inspire, Support, Empower.
We were so fortunate to gather in person at the new Soho House location in the heart of Austin, Texas- which was named the new start up capital by Tech Crunch in 2021. Our full day of programming featured panels, firesides, and a film screening addressing the challenges faced by women of all walks of life, how they’ve overcome those challenges, and ways to uplift ALL women. Highlights of the day included an opening keynote by Fyli Advisor Susan Rockefeller, and our Women Who Are Radically Resilient and Owning Your Raise panels. Some of our panels were streamed globally via the Soho House app to over 200k members and will be available for replay on our platform in the coming weeks, which you can register for HERE.
Our incredible day of panels was followed by an intimate VIP Dinner bringing together founders, funders, speakers, and event partners to break bread and engage in conversation about the day, share their missions, and make their ASKS of the community at large. Empowering women to ask for what they want and need is a core component of Fyli’s DNA and no Fyli event is complete without encouraging attendees to do just that.
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.
“For all of us to be able to rise we need each other, and as we know from FYLI, we need women supporting women. Studies show that women set more ambitious life goals in the presence of other women they admire. FYLI is a community that catalyzes these relationships with mentorship, education, and access to capital. The International Women’s Day celebration hosted by FYLI gave me hope and inspiration that together we can all work to realize our dreams for a better world. “ – Susan Rockefeller, Philanthropist, Founder & EIC, Musings
