    Great community for women in tech – engaged, very friendly and supportive, thoughtful



    I've been on Leap for about a year, and it's really worth the time and effort. If you're building a product, this is a really supportive community. The women involved come from all size companies, from bootstrapping entrepreneurs to larger companies, so you can draw on a range of resources.

Hi hunters and makers! I’m excited to announce my new role as Chief Community Officer of Elpha and the launch of our online community today. My co-founders @cadran_c, @kuanluo and I are building the most powerful network for women in tech. Elpha is the place you can come to find thoughtful industry content delivered through the female lens. Questions we’ve discussed include: 🤔How do I find my first software engineering role? 🤑How do I hire my first salesperson? 😬How do I ask my manager for a promotion? Please share your feedback, I can’t wait to see what you share in the community.

Pumped for you, @abadesi and team. 🙌🏼 Curious to hear from @cadran_c about the biggest surprises/learnings since starting Leap almost a few years ago and how that's informed the new direction with Elpha.
