Who Should Attend
Founders Network creates intimate, founder-only events regularly in New York City. This event is designed to bring tech founders together to discuss the challenges they face with product market fit, fundraising, recruiting, and scale. We value authenticity, humility, reciprocity and inclusivity and strive to reflect these values in both our events and the speakers selected to lead them.
Why You Should RSVP
Founding a company is a grind and can often feel like a lonely journey. We want to fix that. If you’re looking to build a network of founders to support and guide you on your journey to success, sign up for the event and experience the benefits of Founders Network.
