Hosted events in-house

Amazing people, actually fun events, and a place to build both your company and lifelong friendships

Treehouse Cohort 1

Summer 2022 in the heart of Manhattan. We hosted 12 incredible founders who went on to raise over $5M for their companies within the same year. Our founders come from programs like Y Combinator, The Thiel Fellowship, Forbes 30U30 and more. Treehouse Cohort 1 also included events that hosted over 200 investors and founders across the NYC startup ecosystem under one roof, creating energetic environments that strengthened the women founders' community in the city. Last but not least, Treehouse Cohort 1 included 30 commuter founders who co-worked from Treehouse during the cohort. This created a further expansion of our Cohort community, and increased its accessibility to founders in the NYC commutable area.

Treehouse Cohort 2

Summer 2023 in NYC. We hosted over 18 founders who once again came from programs such as Thiel Fellows and YC. This cohort involved a broad range of founders, from seed to Series A and deep tech healthcare through to B2B SaaS products. This cohort focused on developing a program that supported founders by enhancing community and productivity. We conducted workshops that enhanced founders' opportunities to learn more from one another and further their company's goals. The event culminated in an in-person founders and funders gathering in Manhattan, with investors from top funds attending.
