Junior Judge Program

The work of Women Founders Foundation builds upon the Junior Judge program of the Women Founders Network (WFN) Fast Pitch, a yearly competition in Los Angeles for women entrepreneurs. Since 2014, the program has educated more than 90 teen and preteen girls about entrepreneurship through interactive online reading assignments, workshops teaching the fundamentals of business, and their participation in the annual WFN Fast Pitch Event as “venture capitalists for a day” to vote for their favorite company and present a sponsored cash award to their winner.

The Junior Judges walk away from the experience feeling confident, inspired, and motivated, knowing there is a strong community of women available to support them in achieving their goals.
