Book Now For Free


Founders Network
View Organizer Website
Abbie will provide an easy-to-understand overview of the most important data privacy laws – with special emphasis on the US and Europe.

Report after report indicates that consumers care more about data privacy than ever before. In one survey, 84 percent of respondents indicated that they care about privacy, care for their own data, care about the data of other members of society, and they want more control over how their data is being used.

“Data privacy is less of an afterthought now,” says data privacy expert Abbie Clement. “It’s in people’s faces more. There are companies getting fined. It can also be a big hit to your reputation. It’s the talk of the town. Not only are legislatures looking out for this, but consumers are more aware of data privacy and what your rights are. People now understand that they have the right to be upset about misuse of their data.”

Clement is the head of content at iubenda, a data privacy solutions provider that helps startups and other companies make their websites and apps compliant with the data privacy laws, across multiple languages and legislations. On Jan. 25, 2022, Clement will be hosting a webinar for Founders Network members where she’ll provide an easy-to-understand overview of the most important data privacy laws – with special emphasis on the United States and Europe.

Clement will also cover:

  • How to tell which laws apply to you
  • How to comply and common mistakes to avoid
  • Tools that protect your business and help you easily meet your legal obligations
  • How to evaluate your own business for compliance

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.
