We are proud to introduce our October ’14 cohort of tech startup founders! Our newest members join Founders Network with years of experience in sales, marketing, telecommunications, web development, and more. In addition to running their startups, they can be found writing books, contributing to blogs and news publications (including The Washington Post, Business Insider, The Wall Street Journal, and Fox Business), and advising enterprise companies. We welcome a founder whose startup ranked in the top three Microsoft partners in education worldwide, and another who was recently selected as one of the “most promising CEO’s to watch” by Under30CEO. These founders bring their unique experiences all the way from the East Coast, France, Denmark and the Czech Republic, and we are excited to see their growth and impact in FN!
