This is my first startup, and Founders Network provided honest feedback and support at every critical stage, from product-market fit to financial forecasting. It turned what could have been a scary experience into a fun and productive one.

No matter what your question is, chances are there’s an answer on Founders Network. Members are active, engaged and love to solve problems. In addition to the programming and perks, that’s what makes the community stand out.

The founders journey is filled with ups and downs, but being part of the Founders Network community helped me to see issues that arise not as roadblocks but just as obstacles to be overcome with the right support.
