Build in Public πŸ’

Hey friends!

June was all about reflection and learnings, but we're back in action in July, sharing our work with the community around us!

πŸ’ž Kindness and Gratitude

Spotlighting some of the kindness happening in our community.

"I'm grateful for my VC family and all communities that have been supporting me to grow."


"I am grateful for the gorgeous mild high 70s weather my area of the world is experiencing right now. I am also grateful to have joined this VC community this week!"


"I’m grateful for having a job I enjoy, all my VC friends who have been so supportive, and my family."

June Recap

πŸ’‘Monthly Theme & Challenge: Reflection!

Last month the community took some time to reflect, recuperate and recenter ourselves for the rest of the year. We took stock of our achievements for the year, identified spaces where we could improve, and figured out the necessary steps for further growth. Most importantly, we sought feedback and support from each other while doing so.

July Happenings

πŸ’‘Monthly Theme & Challenge: Build in Public!

Build in Public! This challenge is all about sharing your efforts as you make progress! This is the month for revealing the things you're actively working on as you build them up. Anyone can showcase a final product but there's real vulnerability in showing yourself in the weeds, doing the hard parts. Writing, streaming, Github links, review sessions, do what you can to get your work out there. If you don't want to go full public eye, you can always just stick to your handy dandy VC crew of compatriots. Don't be scared to share! We always appreciate each other's endeavours. You can learn more here!
