The last Friday of every month we produce 20 minute FLF talks at locations around the world.

Our community arrives each month hungry for content that can inspire, educate, and empower them to continue their journeys changing the world. We are always looking for great speakers. Sign up or nominate someone today!
Please support our vision to create an interconnected global entrepreneurial community focused on driving our economy, creating jobs, and changing the world. It's because of your support that we are able to gather our startups and entrepreneurs each month. And if we commit to this work on a monthly basis we provide our community with new jobs, new opportunities, and the infrastructure we need to keep it healthy, active, and sustainable for years to come.
