I have close to 100 Founders who are interested in being set up with a 6-8 person Founder Forum, so there may be 10-15 forums that I will create. The more people I have to build these Forums, the better. I will be able to pick the most relevant people from a larger pool. Cofounders and competitors can join as well, but I will put them into separate forums — I will remove conflicts like this.
1) Invite more Founders! (I'm going to have to cut off soon.)
2) Please complete the following form, so that I know more about you, your business and your potential conflicts, so that I can put you into the best group: bit.ly/ForumFormQs. At the end of the form, you will be able to join our Slack group (thanks David Crow). (This is also the link that you can share with others who want to join a forum or the Slack group.)
3) I’m running another Hangout, Wednesday December 2 at 10am eastern (this time so people can ask questions while I present). Joining me will be an experienced YPO member (Will Andrew) who is helping me and can provide another perspective on the value of Forums.
4) Once I hit 100 people, we’ll start putting you into Forum groups … and talking about your other Forum options (i.e. OneEleven, AceTech, EO, YPO).
Founders: you have a tough and lonely job. Do you have a confidential peer forum group yet? I’m part of a confidential forum group of 8 or so founders that has become an INCREDIBLE resource for everyone involved. We share everything: startup life, personal … stresses, successes. The business learnin…
I have an idea I'm brewing and would love to connect with someone who is potentially looking to work on this project with me and has experience in the accelerator, incubator or coworking space. I'm part of a few other networks but thought I'd throw this out here also.

Andreas DuessBen, the sign-up link doesn't work unless you have the relevant email address. If you want to set up a public Slack channel, you will need to add members manually.

Ben BaldwinSorry if you're having trouble signing up for the Slack group. I'm actually relatively new to Slack, so I'm not sure how to let people join without permission. Does anyone know how I can let anyone join this channel, from any email address?
Ben BaldwinI'm no tech superstar, so I've already wasted time trying to set this Zap up (unsuccessfully). Anyone want to help? I've set up the Typeform page and the Zapier account ... just need a bit of help connecting them. Ay takers?

The organizing team for Web Summit events is encouraging women in tech to attend their events, such as the Collision conference in New Orleans in April. You can see more about this initiative here on their blog: blog.websummit.net/commitment-to-change/.
Given the conversation we've had here about women getting involved in local events, I thought this was a great example of how it's being done for other organizations. (Of course, this is focused more on the attending vs. speaking side of things, but it's a start.)
For Collision, they are asking every confirmed attendee to invite one more female entrepreneur or aspiring female entrepreneur to join them at the conference - for free (of course, you still have to pay for your travel and accommodation).
I'm planning to attend, and hoping that others from this group will consider it too. I'd be happy to extend an invite to others that want to attend; all that I need is a name and email address to submit here: collisionconf.com/change... See MoreSee Less
As part of an initiative we’re running to even the gender ratio at our events, we’re giving ten thousand complimentary tickets to our events to women in the tech industry across the world – we hope that it will, in some small way, contribute to solving the problem.
