STATION F Birthday recap, with pictures!

Jul 6, 2018 · 4 min read

Last week, STATION F celebrated its first birthday! As Roxanne Varza, STATION F director, put it:

“So much has happened in our first 12 months — we launched a *ton* of programs, have worked with over 1,000 startups (many of which already have crazy accomplishments to share!), have welcomed loads of visitors from far-away lands (the list even includes Presidents, Prime Ministers, Dukes and Princes).”

That calls for celebration, right?

If you missed our Birthday -ALL DAY- Party, here’s what happened!

STATION F WTF! Conference — with unexpected data from 1,000 startups, our top startup highlights, and Tony Fadell!

When people imagine an entrepreneur they generally picture a 20-something year old male in a hoodie, perhaps a college drop out coding away night and day.

To check if this image is true, we decided to study the data ourselves. We gathered facts, figures, opinions, and preoccupations among all STATION F residents that were here during our first year of existence, and presented them in front of a 400-people crowd.

You can read all about the data HERE!
