Serial entrepreneur Micha Breakstone has every reason to focus on his successes, but prefers to speak about his founder and startup journey

The Co-founder of Chorus.ai, Micha Breakstone, which was recently acquired by ZoomInfo for $575M believes that success is only possible when individuals are willing to learn from challenges.

Breakstone will present a keynote speech in which he’ll detail seven ways founders can find success. He’ll tell personal stories and offer advice on topics including the importance of choosing the right co-founders, creating ‘perceived momentum,’ finding a sense of mission and building a team.

You’ll learn:

  • Why you should ask about values when choosing co-founders
  • Ideas to generate the sense that your startup is moving fast
  • The most important factor in building your team
  • Ways to stay inspired about your mission amid pivots

Micha will be introduced by Ataer Arguder (June’19 Cohort), currently a Co-Founder of two London-based tech startups (Aura and Breath Hub), as well as fnLondon Chapter Director.

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
