The Oxford Founders Society is delighted to invite you to join us for an evening in conversation with three leading female founders from different sectors to hear more about what it means to be a woman in entrepreneurship today 🚀. Here is our fantastic lineup:

Our panellists are Eccie Newton, Co-Founder of Karma Kitchens and Karma Cans, Susan Burton, Founder and CEO of Classlist, and Lily Elsner, Co-Founder and CEO of Jack Fertility. Each of these women has a unique story to share, and we are honoured to have them join us for this event. Eccie Newton is a powerhouse in the commercial kitchen industry, with £250m under management and plans to open 50 sites across Europe in the next 5 years. Susan Burton’s free app for school parent communities, Classlist, has raised over £4m in VC funding and has over 450,000 registered parents in over 30 countries. Lily Elsner’s company, Jack Fertility, is revolutionising male fertility by offering lab-grade sperm testing at home, recently nominated by the Prime Minister as one of the UK’s most exciting new startups, and winning a grant from FemTech Lab.

The panel discussion will focus on the challenges that women entrepreneurs face in today’s business world, as well as the opportunities and successes that they have experienced. Don’t miss the chance to ask questions and interact with our panellists during the Q&A session!

Join us afterwards for some networking, with Prosecco and doughnuts on the house! Kindly provided by Zonin and Crosstown
