250 participants will be chosen from a highly selective application process, after which you’ll be matched with a small group of 12 peers with whom you’ll spend the afternoon.
Each group will be led by a Female executive, investor or VC that will facilitate discussions and keep things interesting. And at the end of the day, your Facilitator will take your group out to dinner.
5 workshops that focus on things that matter to your business but that you can’t just read about — things like Hiring, Culture, Selling to Fortune 500s and Negotiation — created by the experts, conducted with your peers.

GCT’s goal is to create a single point of density of the very best entrepreneurs, working on the biggest problems, by offering the best resources at the best terms — a full year, access to a tremendous community, global investors, in-house recruiters while charging no equity and taking no rent.
In our first two classes, we’ve been fortunate to receive thousands of applications, which resulted in 37 of the most impressive companies joining our community. Of these 37 companies, we’re proud that 50% of our founders are women. We’ve achieved this statistic while maintaining incredibly high standards of selectivity. The challenge GCT has put forward to build a better, more inclusive tech community in New York is resonating, it is working, and we want to continue to drive these results.
The experience of these first two classes of GCT has revealed clear and resounding insights into the needs of a female founder in New York, which informs the philosophy and format of The GCT 2X in Tech Conference:
With the 2X in Tech conference, GCT hopes to honor this duality by executing on an afternoon of programming that will provide hands-on learning, meaningful networking, and idea sharing without harping on any of the tired, often counter-productive tropes of being a woman in tech. Think of it as one of the best tech conferences you’ve ever attended… that just so happens to have men in the severe minority for a change.
