New community events on campus
STATION F community is full of incredible people. In order to help them get to know each other, we’ve created new events: 
  • The Big Awkward Picnic: a monthly gathering for residents to eat together, awkward questions included.
  • Meet a Neighbor, Get a Favor: twice a month, one of our 30 startup programs introduces their companies around a nice breakfast on Monday morning, and residents exchange favors!
  • STATION Feel The Love: for Valentine’s Day, we’ve decided to fill STATION F with Love! Our residents enjoyed a cocktail with musical blind tests and heart-shaped cookies, and were able to send candies to their secret crushes (and startup program managers of course).
These events are residents only, follow us on Instagram to follow them live!
