Announcing New Sector Groups at Founders Network!1 min read

As a startup founder seeking advice, you want to surround yourself with people who know your industry.  After all, one founder’s Fashion industry discussion can be noise to a founder in Clean Tech.   But it takes time to discover, connect and establish relationships with industry peers –time you shouldn’t be wasting.

After several months in development, we’re excited to officially announce Founders Network Sector Groups aka fnSectors.  Our community of over 500 members is now organized into 15 new fnSectors, each chaired by a founder chosen for their expertise and commitment to leading sector-specific peer mentorship.  Chairs (listed below) include 500 Startups grad Cynthia Schames of AbbeyPost, who is heading up the Fashion Tech fnSector and young entrepreneur Tyler Dikman of Loungebuddy, who is leading the Travel fnSector.  Members can now easily connect through a dedicated sector forum on our Online Mentorship Platform and participate in focused conversations around fundraising, recruiting, growth and exits.
