BFFs — we are thrilled to announce that we’re joining the incredible Boss Beauties family!
This exciting acquisition marks a significant milestone in all we’ve experienced together as a community, and we wouldn’t be here without you. We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for being an integral part of the BFF story thus far. Your support, enthusiasm and dedication have been the inspiration for everything we do — and we are just getting started!
What does this mean for you? We anticipate the potential for many exciting new collaborations and partnerships on the horizon, along with greater access to a wider range of programming and fresh perks.
As you know, we've always worked to connect our BFF community to global opportunities. Even during a bear market, nothing has kept you — our amazing community of learners — from seeking education and professional development. We’ve taken great pride in creating spaces for Web3 peers and colleagues to come together and learn about frontier tech, and that won’t be stopping any time soon.
But now, it’s time to grow. What's next? Join us for a public Twitter Space with Boss Beauties co-founder and CEO Lisa Mayer and BFF co-founder Jaime Schmidt today at 5pm ET. Tune in to hear from the founders about our exciting shared vision (set your Spaces reminder here!).
