Virtual Happy Hour

Join us each third Tuesday of the month from 5PM – 6:30PM Pacific for some female founder community, connection and co-creation. Each month is a bit different but we often share a “one breath” summary of our businesses and do an #ask of what we need to help our businesses through this rough period and what we can #offer the community.

This is a chance to learn more about the amazing community of Changing Tides female founders and investors (open to all who identify as womxn), and to let our hair down and have some fun together. Join us – it’s totally free.

Let’s change this tide together!


I had a great time and met some amazing women. I will absolutely check out the programs and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Ashleigh Marie Brown Founder of CLAIRE

Guidelines & Structure

  • First and foremost, the Happy Hour is a safe space that is respectful to all participants.
  • Each happy hour starts with a round of introductions and a round of asks & offers.
  • We try to keep the conversation light while providing a space for people to vent, express frustration, and share honestly.
  • We avoid tabloid conversations (including gossip).
  • We avoid politically or socially charged topics that are not related directly to small business / founders / current business environment / mental health.
  • We also respect that this is an international group with different political, social, and religious beliefs.
  • No presentations during happy hours – a graph or simple overview is fine (like sharing criteria for a grant program, etc.).
  • We close with another call for offers/asks that may have come up during the meeting.
  • We always end on a high note – this can be a story, quote, joke, setting an intention for the coming week, positive news, or words of encouragement.
