Why Building Your Audience Can't Wait
Fireside Chat + Happy Hour at NY Tech Week

Spots are limited and first-come-first serve!

Come join Gen She at Shopify NYC to network with the best founders, builders, and creators and discuss the burning question on everyone's mind: how do you or your business compete in this hyper-competitive market? We think the answer lies in content, media and building the right audience.

Meet and hear from our panelists:

Nik Sharma - Nik is the CEO of Sharma Brands, working with brands like Feastables, Crocs, and Chamberlain Coffee to scale to $100s of millions in revenue. He’s also an investor and advisor to some of the fastest-growing brands in commerce.

​Jade Beguelin - Founder of 4AM Skin (featured in Vogue) and a content creator with 145k+ on TikTok.

Ankur Nagpal - Founder of Carry, helping business owners and high earning professionals grow their net worth with smart tax optimization, and former founder of Teachable (acquired for ~$250M).

…and me! - Founder of Gen She, capital & community for 200k+ women across tech, entrepreneurship, venture, and media

But I don’t live in NYC, so why should I come? I recommend flying in! NY Tech Week offers an unparalleled concentration of startup, tech, and venture capital expertise, all packed into one neighborhood. Whether you're seeking a new job, launching your brand, or looking to raise funds, there is no better place to expedite this process in a more efficient and time-effective way. Opportunities that you can't even imagine—or may not yet know exist—are waiting here for you. It's up to you to seize them! It’s these moments that can lift you out of a rut and propel your career to the next level. Don’t miss out!


🛠️ Build Gen She With Me

You only need 1000 fans to make six figures

To make six figures, you don’t need a massive following—just 1000 true fans. This is the essence of Kevin Kelly’s 1,000 True Fans Theory. If each of these fans spends $100 a year on something you produce, you can easily earn $100,000.

But what defines a true fan? A true fan isn't just someone who follows you on Instagram because you went viral for a trend once. A true fan feels a deep connection to you, is significantly impacted by your work, and will purchase anything you offer out of loyalty rather than logic. Building such loyalty through a 30-second video on someone's For You Page is nearly impossible. Similarly, it’s unrealistic to meet or message every follower you have in order to build that authentic 1:1 connection. That’s why long-form content—like YouTube or podcasts—is vital. It provides a scalable way to build deeper engagement than a 30-second video can, giving your audience genuine reasons to connect with and support you. Those who spend hours consuming your content are likely to become true fans.

That's why I’ve decided to start my own YouTube channel, where I'll share more personal content to help you get to know me better. I’m on a quest to find my 1000 true fans, and I think platforms like YouTube or Spotify are where I’ll find them.

My first video dives into how I saved $100,000 before turning 25, which enabled me to quit my job and pursue entrepreneurship without financial worries. I share the exact steps and sacrifices I made to achieve financial independence early and follow my true career ambitions. I hope it resonates with you!

And if you comment on my video suggesting topics you’d like to see more of, you’ll be entered to win $100 worth of beauty and wellness products!!! Good luck!

P.S. If you prefer audio, you can always find my episodes on Spotify or Apple Music!
