About 

Hot Fruit 

 

Hot Fruit is a San Francisco-based event series for women, designed to create serendipitous conversations. Born out of desire to introduce creative women to each other, Hot Fruit is a made up of women who want to make meaningful connections in life and in work. Our attendees, fondly called "Fruits," are from a variety of industries, including advertising, publishing, fashion, food, and technology.

In case you're wondering 

How it works

Inspired by the idea that we are all connected by six degrees of separation, Hot Fruit grows organically through each attendee's personal relationships. Once you've been invited to and have attended a Hot Fruit, you can invite a friend to the next one.

Before you go

What to expect

Fruits are interested in having an IRL experience that is more captivating than their social feed. We designed Hot Fruit intentionally so you don’t need a buddy with you to attend. Every Fruit arrives ripe, open to introducing herself and cultivating new friendships.
