I've been watching Leap grow over the last year, and love seeing its evolution. I've also become legitimate friends w/ a few women that I've met through Leap. I wish this existed years ago, when I first entered the tech scene in San Francisco. Thank you, Cadran!

Pros:

Diverse topics, great networking opportunity, inspiring demonstrations of women helping women.

Cons:

There honestly aren't cons. Of course, the community will improve as more members join, which is inevitable given the quality of the forum.

There's a trend in tech that when women start talking about stuff that impacts us, suddenly a storm blows up, usually kicked off by men. It goes from just trying to share a perspective to having to defend ourselves, explain ourselves, etc etc. I've never had to do that in Leap. It's amazing !!!!!!

Pros:

We can talk about anything we want with others who empathise. Refreshing to speak my mind without having to debate or justify my opinions.

Cons:

None so far, just hope it keeps growing and gets more global reach.

I actually love LEAP, even though I have been a user for few weeks, I have already interacted quite a lot. I'm saying this knowing that I have been member of several female founders group on Facebook but I don't interact as much. That's maybe because I felt too exposed or uncomfortable. On LEAP, it feels so natural and I love to share , ask questions and get advice direct or indirect from women in the same situation I'm in as an early stage founder. I can't wait for it to grow more !

Pros:

It feels natural to interact with everyone, topics are super interesting yet diverse, Simple UI yet super effective! Love it!

Cons:

I don't see any. I thought the notifications emails would bother me but I actually love getting them and be updated on the topics I like!
